A 'royal gossip' journal has sold at auction for £2,500. The journal was written by Lt Gen Somerset Calthorpe who recalls visits to Osborne House from 1888-1901. These visits include many royal dinner parties and private functions as well as conversations with Queen Victoria herself. Handwritten copies of the original journal also sold well at the auction-eventually hammering for £1,450.
