Description

Queen Adelaide's Coach No 2, 1842. This royal carriage, the first royal saloon, was built for Queen Adelaide, (1792-1849), the widow of William IV of England (reigned 1830-1837), by the London and Birmingham Railway. The design was based on three stagecoach compartments, and was built to the highest standards of the time. The interior was beautifully furnished and upholstered by craftsmen. It is thought that during the daytime the queen travelled in the end (coupe) compartment, with her close attendants travelling in the middle compartment.
