Take a rare glimpse inside Queen Victoria's beloved 'Osborne House' which since the great monarchs death in 1901 has been used as a Navy training college and a convalacent home for military officers.

Victoria was very taken with the Isle of White mansion, declaring that it was 'impossible to imagine a prettier spot' and often visitied it with her husband Prince Albert.

The house was gifted to the state by King Edward VII following Queen Victoria's death in 1901 and much of the property is now open to the public.

However, some rooms still remain shut off from the public eye. These rare images by the Daily Mail show how much the mansion has changed since it was owned by Victoria and her husband.
