In celebration of her Diamond Jubilee, and of Queen Victoria's birthday on 24 May, Queen Elizabeth II has made the journals of Queen Victoria available to the public.
The journals provide a picture of Queen Victoria's life
from the first entry in 1832 at the age of 13 until 10 days before her death
aged 81 in 1901.
Digital images of every page in Queen Victoria's diaries are available at Queen Victoria's Journals . Full transcriptions
and keyword searching of the journal entries cover the period from
Queen Victoria's first diary entry in July 1832 to her marriage to
Prince Albert in February 1840
This is an ongoing project and journal entries will continue to be transcribed.
