Sunday nights has a new hit show and the show is called Victoria. This well put together mini-series depicts the life of one of the longest reigning British Queens. The first series talks about the first few years of the reign of Queen Victoria, played by Jenna Coleman, from her accession to the throne at the age of eighteen, to her intense friendship and infatuation with Lord Melbourne, to her courtship and early marriage to Prince Albert (played by Tom Hughes) and finally to the birth of their first child, Victoria.
The second series will follow Victoria’s struggles on managing her role as Queen with that of her duties to her husband and children. I first saw one of the series episodes last Sunday and I hope that you will as join me on the royal journey.
Here is an official show trailer:
