Maharajah Duleep Singh: Indian boy king’s warm friendship with Queen Victoria

“One of my favourite items in the exhibition is a signed journal by Queen Victoria which reads: To Maharajah Duleep Singh from his affectionate friend, Victoria, Windsor Castle, March 1868,” says UK-based historian and art collector Peter Bance. “This is a really intimate and personal inscription [by the Queen] referring to the former King of the Punjab as her friend,” he adds.
