I’m really looking forward to the three-part series “Queen Victoria’s Children”, on BBC 2 at 9pm on 1-3 January 2013. My biography of the sculptor Princess Louise (6th child of Victoria and Albert) is being published by Chatto in November 2013. As a result, I am one of the interviewees for the programme, and can be seen in the first two episodes on 1 and 2 January. One of my favourite comments so far about the programme came from the Radio Times, which described the interviewees as “a sort of firing squad of biographers”. What a superb description!
