I Enjoyed this. She was being honest about the life of queen victoria. Personally i'm tired of bio's about this odd looking queen. She was so on point when she said victoria was not a good looking woman #Truth :) This woman pulled back the Curtain on Victoria's life .... the reality not the glossed over bio's that we've seen. #WELLDONE!

Good grief. All the anger at the author! Queen Victoria was fat. The records show that the Queen overate. These are facts. It is endearing that along with her powerful, influential side there was also vanity, gluttony, passion, devotion, compassion. What an amazing woman!

It isn't unheard of that someone in depression following the loss of her husband, of course, in mourning, would find comfort in food. Hence the term "comfort eating." Sarcasm really puts me off too-- And another thing, the Queen's metabolism could have changed after having kids--mine did. I blow up if I look at a full plate of food. I have to have mostly protein shakes with salads. And what's with the attitude----did Victoria shoot her dog or something?? This video gave me a headache. Finally, I never did see those pictures she was alluding to.

I listened to a good portion of this lecture. I know nothing of the subject, nor do I pretend to have any intellectual leanings or experience of such lectures per se. What struck me most before I stopped listening was that I felt in my own heart, hurting, anger, and grief. I believe that is what Dr. Gray is speaking from ... and for myself, I found that it polluted much of what she was speaking about. But I tried instead of reacting to her from my own bruised ego, to have compassion for myself, and so for her own past and those who've suffered the injustices of which she speaks. There is such suffering in this life.

Did she really have to bring Donald Trump into a lecture on Victoria? Not all in her 'audience' find her remarks amusing or appropriate. Give the lecture and leave the disparaging remarks about the leader of the most powerful country in the world at home, where you can gossip about it over tea. I am not amused.

Since you brought it up (". . . the leader of the most powerful country"), you show a great sense of the ridiculous. The only thing for which Trump leads is the record for claiming bankruptcies for which the US citizens ultimately pick up the bill. Your ignorance is just sad.

QUEEN VICTORIA THE GREATEST QUEEN OF ENGLAND - If Dr. Annie Gray spoke out against the Queen when she was living, she would be cast into one of the dungeons facing trial. STRIKE at one Royal Monarch and you strike at all the Monarchs which endangers the future of the Monarchy. RESPECT IS IN ORDER. Disgusting bit of 30 seconds of fame ... SHAME!!

STRIKE at someone when they can no longer defend themselves or their actions. The TRUTH is Queen Victoria allowed herself to be in a state of mourning long after her beloved Prince Albert expired. Her love was so great she drowned her sorrows in the comforts of food. Queen Victoria is and will always be one of the greatest Queens who ever lived. When you can speak out against the Monarchy how long do you think the Monarchy will survive? All books which are negative in nature should be banned from public reading. SHAME !!!

she seems to have been a proper Georgian with her food! (the exception to the rule seems to have been George III. he didn't like the tendency to plumpness which he inherited so tried to be careful with a great deal of exercise and a restricted diet. he tried to pass this example onto his children in their early life and failed spectacularly.)

MarshalPoole and also because it was expensive, as I mentioned, though less expensive by the time she died than when she got married because of the development of chemical detergents and also because white clothes were cheaper because of the advent of cotton and muslins. But she probably didn't really know how much clothes cost.

MarshalPoole she was in mourning since Albert died but many traditional funerals are still white to represent purity. She was the person who popularised white wedding dresses to donate expense and status because most people before then bought a new dress for their wedding but couldn't afford not to wear it again and white was very difficult and costly to launder. She most likely wanted a white funeral because she thought of it as her second wedding because after she died she would rejoin Albert in heaven.

Spoiled for me by unnecessarily lengthy introduction, telling us little about Victoria, and straying into remarks about current day political figures which were calculated to put off those of us who are grateful for Donald Trump's presidency.   The speaker doesn't like him - that's her right.  But her view of him has no place in a lecture billing Queen Victoria as "A Greedy Queen".
