Waiting On Wednesday - Queen Victoria: Daughter, Wife, Mother, Widow

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a feature created and hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights an upcoming release.

My pick today is  
Queen Victoria: Daughter, Wife, Mother, Widow by Lucy Worsley


 Title: Queen Victoria: Daughter, Wife, Mother, Widow
Author: Lucy Worsley
Pages: 288
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Release Date: 6th September 2018

Blurb from Goodreads: 

Bestselling author and historian Lucy Worsley tracks a new course through Queen Victoria's life, examining how she transformed from dancing princess to the Widow of Windsor and became one of Britain's greatest monarchs along the way. Taking twenty-four significant days from Victoria's life, from her birth, her wedding, her coronation to her husband's death, and many more in between, allows us to see Victoria up close and personal, examining how she lived hour to hour. 

Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria's birth, this major new biography will celebrate Queen Victoria as a woman of her time, who lived an extraordinary life.

Why I'm Anticipating this book:

I'm a big Lucy Worsley fan and I have her Jane Austen at Home book (although I haven't read it yet). I love her documentaries.
I also find Queen Victoria really interesting so I can't wait to read this!
Also, how gorgeous is that cover?

What's your Waiting On Wednesday pick?
