Chef Rosemary Shrager and Antiques expert Tim Wonnacott visit The Royal Pavilion Brighton to reveal the story behind 19 year old Queen Victoria's visit during the Christmas Holidays in 1838 – the year she became queen. Tim shows us the extraordinary Chinese style interior and reveals just how it was styled in this way thanks to one of Victoria's predecessors. He also discovers that when Victoria wasn't in the mood for jolly times or the garish interiors had got the better of her, she would retire to her own private apartments where, interestingly, the decor is much plainer than the rest of the house possibly at her request. Perhaps it's an early sign of the serious side of the young queen. From her diary entries we glimpse how reading Dickens helped shape her thoughts about her subjects and we have an insight into the serious minded queen she was becoming. In her diary she writes of reading Oliver Twist and is clearly intrigued by the descriptions of squalid vice, starvation and workhouses. Her special new year's resolution reveals a passion for getting the job right. "Almighty God preserve me safely through this year …and make me daily more fit for my station." Rosemary visits the servants' rooms up inside one of the famous domes, closed to the public, where she hears how Victoria went there to watch fireworks. And in one of the finest Victorian kitchens in the country, chef and food historian Ivan Day helps Rosemary recreate a set of elaborate decorative jellies – all the rage at the time – including a pink champagne jelly made in a typical elaborate Victorian mould, two commemorative jellies and a comic masterpiece.
