Frances Urquhart is now Prime Minister and is somewhat haunted by what he has done in the past. A newly crowned King presents him with more of a challenge that he may have expected. The King has a conscience and to Urquhart's distress, wants to 'make a contribution'. Urquhart doesn't stand by idly and the King's interest in a major urban renewal project means curtains for the Environment Secretary who proposed it. Meanwhile, the PM hires a new political adviser Sarah Harding and his right-hand man, Tim Stamper, puts into motion an insurance policy of sorts they've developed by co-opting a member of the Royal family, Princess Charlotte. The King's refusal to change a speech where he is seemingly at odds with the government sets the wheels of his destruction in motion. Written by
Did You Know?
After your divorce the family made a financial settlement.
Yes they did, jolly mingy one too.
Ah, quite. Wasn't done from affection or compassion, was it? They were purchasing your silence. Your good behaviour. There's a story you could tell, not only the intimate details of your own life but also the lives of others. It would be such a sensational story that you could ask any price for it you care to name. And it would almost certainly bring down the monarchy, yes?
Right, I suppose.
