Queen Victoria’s wedding shoes mingled with royalty once again on Wednesday 13 June. The shoes were one of the items representing Northamptonshire at the Four Counties Jubilee Picnic at Burghley House.
On show in the Northamptonshire marquee was a selection of current footwear by shoe companies still making high quality men’s shoes, including Church’s, Trickers, Jeffery-West, J L & Co and Edward Green.
The VIP guests expressed their amazement at how small and narrow Queen Victoria’s shoes were. About a 3 – 3 ½.
Finally the moment we had all been waiting for came and the Queen was introduced to her great great grandmother’s shoes.
