Hi-tech illusions bring Queen Victoria's palace to life in UK Summer exhibition

Updated : 2019-07-18 11:06:59

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth visited an exhibition dedicated to her great-great-grandmother Victoria on Wednesday, which uses cutting-edge technology to recreate Buckingham Palace as it was during the 19th century. Visitors will see projections and illusions showing the vibrant colours of the palace interiors before Victoria's eldest son Edward VII redecorated it predominantly in white and gold. They will also see aspects of Victoria's motherly side, including a casket containing the baby teeth of her children and white marble casts of some of their limbs.
