Lucy Worsley - September 2018

By: Holly Newson
Narrated by: Lucy Worsley

Summary

Joining us for the second time in the Audible studios to talk about her latest book, Queen Victoria, is best-selling British author, historian and television presenter Lucy Worsley.  

Lucy Worsley has become a household name through our screens as a presenter of history programmes for the BBC and as an author of several best-selling books, including Jane Austen at Home. Beginning her career working for English Heritage before becoming chief curator of Historic Royal Palaces, Lucy Worsley published her latest book, a biography of Queen Victoria, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of her birth.  

Lucy Worsley talks to us about our continual fascination with the monarchy, why she loves sharing history so much and how in love Queen Victoria and Prince Albert really were.

So NOT Stephen Fry - Thank You!

Much enjoyed this vignette. No theatrics, simply crisp, lighthearted and above all meaningfull! Lucy Worsley comes across as knowledgeable and wholly in charge of whatever topic she is addressing. Her latest "Victoria" offering is already on my Audible Wish List.

I love Lucy!

I wasn't really into history when I was at school but I saw a documentary about women before and during the reclamation of the monarchy of King Charles and I must admit I got bit of a girl crush, it was so beautifully presented and so informative that I fell in love with the history of women through the ages, not just women from high born but every woman. Lucy worsley made me fall in love with history. I highly recommend her. And I will be purchasing her new book.

In depth interview

Really enjoyed this interview with Lucy Worsley all about Queen Victoria. It's humorous and very entertaining and you learn quite a bit as you listen, but without spoiling the book.
I think Worsley clearly enjoys the Victorian aspect of history and it comes across in the passionate way she speaks about her subject. Very enjoyable.

Lovely

Awesome, Lucy is such an interesting historian. Her technique is modest and warming.
Highly recommend just a shame it is not longer.

History was never this appealing

A great overview of one of our most troubled but successful monarchs. I need to check out Lucy's book so she can read to me...
