Publisher's Summary

The young Princess Victoria, strictly confined within the boundaries of Kensington Palace, is being moulded for her awesome future as Queen of England. Surrounded by her dolls and closely guarded by her domineering mother and faithful governess, she slowly becomes aware of the bitter conflicts that surround her. The jealous and scheming Duke of Cumberland is a constant threat to her rightful accession …her mother’s sinister friend, Sir John Conroy, makes her uneasy … and the bickering between her mother and the king seems never-ending.

Growing up is proving difficult for the princess. She longs for her 18th birthday when at last she will be free to rule the nation as she pleases and to re-acquaint herself with the gallant Prince Albert.

The Captive of Kensington Palace

I very much enjoyed this book and the author brought the history to life. It was narrated in a manner that made the history of Princess Victoria so real and interesting.
