Nothing was out of the ordinary when eighteen-year-old Princess Victoria went to bed on the evening of Monday, June 19, 1837. She fell asleep in Kensington Palace in London, in the room she shared with her mother, the Duchess of Kent. She had always shared a room with her mother. Her mother never allowed her to be alone.
At six o’clock the next morning, though, Victoria’s world changed. She woke up to hear her mother say that two men had arrived at the palace. They wished to see Victoria.
The men were the archbishop of Canterbury and the lord chamberlain. The archbishop of Canterbury was the leader of the Church of England. The lord chamberlain was the top official in the royal household, where the king lived.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Update: we finished the book. It was a very dry read and probably the most boring of the Who Was books we read so far. The book doesn't go into much detail at all about what makes the Victorian Era so special. It briefly touches on a few things such as the telephone but we werent at all satisfied with that as a reason Queen Victoria is so memorable out of all the kings and queens in history. As other reviewers have said, the author only had positive opinions if Victoria, surely she wasnt loved by all such as the Irish who were going to through a famine at the time. I'm disappointed and feel we could've learned more reading a wikipedia page.
