Details

A key focus of the visitor tour at the Royal Pavilion is the Prince Regent’s Great Kitchen. But this kitchen was only a small part of a much larger area comprising pastry and confectionery offices, silver sculleries coffee rooms and more, long since vanished from view.

Using plans, accounts and inventories from the Royal Archive at Windsor and the National Archives at Kew, this talk will recreate this catering complex as a working space, focusing not only on the layout of the rooms, but the work and identity of individual servants and how these related to the structure and working machinery of the Royal Household as a whole.

Dr Tracy Anderson is an independent art historian currently working at the Royal Pavilion for the new display Servant Stories and the exhibition Jane Austen By the Sea. She is also engaged in research for a book on the Royal Household of George IV at Brighton. Her interest in the representation and fashioning of monarchy underpinned her doctorate on Queen Victoria and India (University of Sussex) and she has published on portraiture and commemoration in the context of the British Raj.
