Join Rosie Razzall, Curator of Prints and Drawings at Royal Collection Trust, to learn more about Queen Victoria's historic state visit in Paris in 1855; a remarkable moment in Anglo-French relations. The events of this ten-day tour - spectacular balls, firework displays and cheering crowds as well as the quieter moments - are brought to life through discussion of the watercolours on display in the current fascinating exhibition Queen Victoria in Paris.
