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.

Working with a Hollywood production company, the curators have also recreated a waltz staged at the palace at the end of the Crimean war.

The exhibition, which marks the 200th anniversary of Victoria's birth, also features her throne, ballgown and water colour paintings.

Acceding to the throne at the age of 18, Queen Victoria ruled the UK from 1837 until her death in 1901.

She was the longest-serving monarch until 2015 when Elizabeth, 93, surpassed her.
