Kate Hubbard was born in London in 1963. After completing a degree at Oxford University she worked variously as a researcher, a teacher, a book reviewer and a publisher’s reader. She is currently a freelance editor.
Kate Hubbard’s first book was a character study of Bess of Hardwick called A Material Girl, published by Faber & Faber in 2001. This was followed, in 2004, by two children’s books: a biography of Charlotte Bronte, and a biography of Queen Victoria both published by Short Books Ltd. In 2007, Hubbard published a fictionalised diary of Russia’s last grand duchess, Anastasia Romanov, daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, entitled, Rubies in the Snow. Her latest book is an immersive portrait of Queen Victoria’s court, Serving Victoria: Life in the Royal Household, published by Chatto & Windus in 2013. This book was shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award.
Kate Hubbard divides her time between Dorset and London. She is currently working on a full-length biography of Bess of Hardwick.
