Witness a set of treasures from the Royal Archives in the latest exhibition at Windsor Castle.

The vast collection of documents to be found in the Royal Archive offer an unparalleled wealth of priceless material. The collection documents in great detail the history of the British Monarchy, with the invaluable pieces having been kept in the Round Tower at Windsor Castle since 1914.

To celebrate this centenary, the exhibition features some of the most important treasures from the archives, making them available to the public for the very first time. Many of the documents on display offer a unique and rare glimpse into the lives of monarchs.

Much of the information is intimate, with highlights of the exhibition including diaries and correspondence sent between members of the Royal Family. One such item is a letter written by Prince Albert to Queen Victoria during their engagement. Interestingly, the letter is written in German, just one small detail that helps give an insight to the private lives past British monarchs.
