I love researching!

Hi

1818

I’ve been having fun researching for the book that I’m working on – The Royal Race of 1818.

I was so pleased to find books and information online BUT I practically did a jig of joy when I came across newspaper articles from 1818 that gave me contemporary reports of two royal weddings, who attended, what they wore, where they went on honeymoon…it was a real step back in to history and it was fabulous.

I found political records too and pages of wordy condolences from the various councils in Britain after the death of the Prince Regent’s daughter, Princess Charlotte of Wales.

All of these articles are obviously approaching two hundred years old but I could feel the reverence and duty, the sadness and uncertainty of the nation’s future.

I am still researching so who knows how many more¬†historical gems I’ll find and marvel at.

Have a great rest of the day. If anyone wants me I’ll be in 1818 Regency Britain!
