Ever since I can remember, I have been smitten with all things English: English country gardens, rambling old estate homes, afternoon tea, British Royalty, William Wordsworth, Royal Albert china, Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, English Country or Victoriana style, James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small, to name a just a few.
I think the romance started when, as a young teen, I first read Victoria Holt's Mistress of Mellyn, Wilkie Collin's Woman in White, and Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca, not to mention everything Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte.
You can imagine then, why I was delighted to learn there is a new movie about Queen Victoria. Here is the link to the trailer for The Young Victoria -- it looks wonderful! Can't wait to watch it.
Ta for now!
