Victoria and Albert are often credited with securing the future of the British monarchy - by presenting themselves as the perfect British family.

Louisa Knight, the Windsor Museum's exhibition curator, treated an appreciative audience to some fascinating insights into Queen Victoria's and Prince Albert's life in Windsor over the weekend when she headed the latest in a series of Creative Heritage Events at Windsor Yards shopping centre.

Young participants were allowed to handle various Victorian objects and play a Victorian game under Louisa's watchful eye.

Louisa had plenty of interesting facts to impart about the royal couple's 'hands on' approach to the town dominated by their castle.

Albert was instrumental in the building of Prince Consort cottages and personally awarded personally signed certificates for general tidiness of the houses, well kept gardens and even raising a family to have good conduct.

Visitors to Louisa's presentation at Windsor Yards also took part in a diamond jubilee themed creative workshop with the Busy Buttons creative art centre, which is based at the centre and has been running the weekly series of events.

The last two events will take place this weekend. The first will feature Eddiespoke Historical Bicycles including some amazing penny-farthings and velocipedes on Saturday. While on Sunday a visitor from Windsor Carriages will shed light on Victorian transport in the town.
