Yeti Television is exploring Queen Victoria’s home on the Isle of Wight, Osborne House, for Channel 5 in feature documentary Osborne House: A Royal Love Story (working title).

Narrated by Harriet Walter, and with access to the house and gardens, the documentary includes interviews with experts and contributions from Osborne staff.

On the north coast of the Isle of Wight, Osborne House was Queen Victoria’s favourite royal residence, where she and her husband Prince Albert came to escape the pressures of royal life – and where the Queen finally passed away. More than a simple holiday home, it was also a testbed of innovation and a seat of power where the Queen and her Prince would preside over the biggest empire in human history.

The documentary was commissioned by Commissioning Editor, Factual, Channel 5 and Paramount + Kit Morey. It is produced and directed by Rebecca Whyte, and exec produced by Yeti’s Sian Price and Andrew O’Connell.

Sian Price, Creative Director at Yeti says, “We have had the privilege of incredible access to Osborne House and some of its staff to delve into this residence’s history and secrets. From technological innovations through to sensual artwork – Osborne is a time capsule where we get closest to the real Victoria and Albert. We can’t wait to share this beautiful film with viewers.”

Kit Morey, Channel 5 added: “Osborne House is full of intrigue and secrets of a bygone era. The team at Yeti have done an amazing job of securing access to this treasure trove of delights.”
