Queen Victoria did have a writing table constructed from the timbers of the HMS Resolute, which was kept for many years in Buckingham Palace, is in fact a twin of the desk in Washington.

It may be a twin, but it is not an identical twin. The writing table is smaller, has a wood top and 4 legs. It is presently on loan from Buckingham Palace to the Royal Naval Museum.

The Resolute Desk is a partners desk with two pedestals and a top with 6 drawers.

In addition, there is another desk - a smaller ladies desk which is in the Boston Whaling Museum. It was made for the widow of the HMS Resolute's captain Grinell.

Furthermore, there is at least one small writing case that was also made from the HMS Resolute timbers.

Is the movie National Treasure 2 Book of secrets fictional?

Yes, even though it had the assianation of the beloved President Lincon at Ford's Theather recreated for us. Some parts of the movie were true events but others were completely made up for the movie, like the presidents secret book. We all agree that no such thing exists and that it was made up to enhance the mystery in the movie that the characters had to solve. However it really could exist and we may not know about it or ever find anything on it.

Is there such thing as the President's secret book?

The president's book exists, it has been passed on from president to president for centuries to come. The book is being kept in a secret compartment which only the president knows, after the new president is chosen, there are to be a special meeting between the president in charge and the president which just stepped down. They will transfer the books, and of course, the new president will choose a new hiding place for it. There were rumors of if the book exists from The National Treasure Book of Secrets, the book from the movie is fake, and no way to be true. The page numbers which contains of the JFK assassination and Area 51 is entirely not true, it contain the nation's secrets, and for the president's eyes only. The book had been burned in 1831, and had been lost during John F. Kennedy's turn of president. The other information of the book are still to be identified. One other thing to think about is that there is a private study off the oval office that only the President can use, I'm sure they keep things like that in there. No place more secure than that.

Should the president keep secrets?

Yes the president should keep certain personal secrets.
