Queen Victoria's 'Victoria' carriage

1889 in Newport
R Bird Cheverton and Company Limited

Queen Victoria's personal Victoria carriage. Design descends from the French Milard carriage, brought to England by the Prince of Wales, Queen Victoria’s son, for his mother in 1869. The English version was named Victoria in the Queen’s honour and became one of the most popular carriages of the 19th Century. Key feature is its low body and lack of doors for easy access. This was the last carriage to be used by Victoria on a journey to Osborne before her death. It was donated in 1936 by HM King Edward VIII with several other Victorian carriages.
