Rare footage found of Queen Victoria in Ireland

I'm no fan of royalty, but this is quite historic and well worth sharing. Rare film footage has been discovered of the British Queen Victoria just shortly before her death on a visit to Ireland, which shows the monarch in considerable detail - and she's wearing shades!

For more on the story, and to see the footage, visit https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/video_and_audio/headlines/48427315/queen-victoria-as-you-ve-never-seen-her-before.
