A super nerdy dream came true last week, when I spent a morning inside the Tower of London. I always had a geeky obsession with the Tudors and Medieval Europe. My inner history nerd can die happy now 😂🇬🇧🏰🤓
♡ Queen Victoria’s Stockings ♡
As promised, here are a pair of Queen Victoria’s stockings that I personally own. They were worn by her when she was younger, judging from the size. They are silk and have a beautiful crown embroidered on the side, with her initials VR underneath. I was lucky enough to win these at an auction last year. Victoria often only wore her stockings a few times, and then would give them to her ladies in waiting. They are so dainty and feminine!
There is another pair just like this that she wore at Kensington Palace on display. I remember the first time I went, I saw them and said to myself that I’d love to own something of hers like the stockings...and my wish came true. I also own a painting of King Henry VIII done in 1546-in his lifetime. Definitely my two prized possessions. Do you have any Royal collector’s items? Please let me know in the comments below! I’d love to hear them ♡
