Queen Victoria as you've never seen her before

High quality film of Queen Victoria on her last trip to Ireland has been rediscovered. The monarch can be seen smiling and nodding. We can even see that she's wearing sunglasses.

The British Film Institute has a free library of Victorian film, and you can see more of MoMA's archives here.
