In turns tender, moving, heartfelt and warm, these are the private messages between people in love. Yet they are also correspondence between the rulers of nations, whose actions (and passions) changed the course of history, for good or bad. Here is a chance to glimpse behind the pomp and ceremony, the carefully curated images of royal splendour and decorum, to see the passions, hopes, jealousies and loneliness of kings and queens throughout history.

From Henry VIII's lovelorn notes to Anne Boleyn to Charles II's hot pursuit of Nell Gwynn to Queen Victoria's tender letters to Prince Albert - these letters depict romantic love from its budding passion to the comfort and understanding of a long union, set against the background of great affairs of state, wars and the strictures of royal duty.
