    The house was designed by Prince Albert, the love of her life.

    No, never been to Isle of Wight, but I am so intrigued by their love story. England has been blessed with strong female regents. They were surrounded by people - friends and enemies - and they trusted their intuition and also competent, loyal counceling.

    So am I - what a remarkable woman! With so many enemies both in catholic England and Europe, her life could have ended much sooner. She was fantastic.

    Osbourne House is well worth the detour if you do come over for a visit.

    What is it about her that switches on your fascination?

    History is wonderful isn’t it. I loved the documentary about finding the remains of Richard lll under that car park.

    I am grappling with the question as to why "The Royals" would decide to bury one of their own under, or even near, a car park. 🤔
