- Synopsis / Plot
- A dramatization of the turbulent first years of Queen Victoria's rule, and her enduring romance with Prince Albert. Story proper begins in 1837, just before the 18th birthday of Princess Victoria of Kent (Emily Blunt), who, in the absence of any other heirs of King William (Jim Broadbent), is next in line to the throne. However, so far Victoria has been kept away from the court by her domineering mother, the Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardson), and her mom’s ambitious adviser, Sir John Conroy (Mark Strong). If the sickly William soon kicks the bucket and mom and Conroy can get the still underage Victoria to sign a regency order, the duchess will be able to rule in her name and Conroy can rule through the duchess. Victoria holds out against their bullying, but across the Channel, her uncle, Belgian King Leopold (Thomas Kretschmann), is plotting to get his nephew, Albert (Friend), to marry Victoria for political convenience. Albert is coached in Victoria’s likes and dislikes, but when the two finally meet, Victoria takes a fancy to him when he drops his act.
