Storyline

1896-1901: Britain finds itself at war in South Africa when British colonists attack the Boer government. But Queen Victoria still refuses to let Bertie have any role in matters of State, so he spends his time going to the races and as is so often the case, plays host to visiting dignitaries, this time the Czar and Czarina of Russia. The Queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee. Bertie is the object of an assassination attempt in Brussels. Now quite old, Queen Victoria dies and Bertie becomes King Edward the VII. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Queen Victoria is furious that W. E. Gladstone has received a state funeral, mentioning that it is unprecedented for a British Prime Minister to receive such an honor. In reality, Gladstone was the third Prime Minister to be granted a state funeral after the Duke of Wellington in 1852 and Lord Palmerston in 1865. See more »
