Storyline

After a successful tour of America, young Prince Bertie returns home to find that his parents do not see it as a personal success rather one that can be attributed to the monarchy in general. His father tells him he is to go to Oxford to continue his studies but will be under the care of a governor and will not be allowed to mix with other students. Bertie really wants to join the army but his father refuses eventually deciding in his favor. He is made a Lieutenant Colonel in the Grenadier Guards and sent to Ireland to undergo his training. There he sees a few familiar faces and begins an affair with an Irish music hall performer. Written by garykmcd

Lord Palmerston tells Prince Albert that the Confederate States of America have secured their first victory in the American Civil War (1861-1865) through the Battle of Fort Sumter (April 12-14, 1861). According to the series' narrative, Queen Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent, dies shortly afterwards. In reality, however, she died on March 16, 1861, almost a month before the battle.
