A lecture to to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and rededication of the Victoria County History (VCH), entitled '"Head of Our Morality": why the twentieth-century British monarchy matters', will be presented by Dr David Starkey at Senate House in London on 25 June.

The VCH was originally dedicated to The Queen’s great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, following her own Diamond Jubilee, and it was Queen Victoria who gave the history its title.

The Institute of Historical Research, which has managed the VCH project since 1933, will continue to celebrate the rededication of the VCH by devoting the annual Marc Fitch lecture to the Diamond Jubilee celebration.
