Queen Victoria was “in mourning” after the death of her husband, Prince Albert, for almost two decades before her Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, convinced her to return to her regal duties. This program will explain what was meant to be “in mourning” during the Victorian era. Learn how to get “that look” for mid-century living historians as we’ll discuss the proper clothing and social expectations placed on men and women.
