Storyline

A month after giving birth, Victoria is frustrated at being cosseted and angry that Albert and the government are excluding her from their business. She is particularly annoyed to learn that they have kept from her the slaughter of British troops in the unwinnable war in Afghanistan and rebuffs Leopold's view that her baby girl is betrothed to a foreign power for political purposes. In the wake of public outrage at the Afghani defeat she rallies the country with a personal appearance whilst Albert's brother Ernest advises him on healing the marital rift. Below stairs the departure of Mrs Jenkins means promotion for Miss Skerrett whilst chef Francatelli is 'persuaded' to return and the formidable Duchess of Buccleuch becomes the new Mistress of the Robes.

Goofs

The writing method of the 19th century and well into the 20th century relied on children being first taught to hold then pens and pencils correctly and then being taught to write. Queen Victoria's method of holding her pen is clear in many of the images of her writing at her desk. Jenna Coleman in S2 E1 clearly is seen holding her pen in the modern "untaught" monkey grips style. See more »
