Storyline

Lord Palmerston takes huge risks championing the case of Don Fernando, a British Jew unjustly arrested in Coburg-ruled Greece, but his gun boat diplomacy prevails. Duke of Wellington retires as commander in chief and agrees the post might be ideal for Albert. The prince consort initially refuses, concentrating his efforts on planning a world exhibition in London and the controversial, seemingly hopeless design of a temporary, fittingly modern palace in Hyde Park. Loveless Duke Charles of Monmouth has had it with adulterous wife Sophie's embarrassing disloyalty but can't touch her at court, so he pays Mr. Pence to spy on her and valet-lover Joseph, whom she neither fully trusts nor agrees to run away with. When son William visits home from 'public' boarding school, the duke has her committed to a lunatic asylum.

Trivia

Quotes

[discussing the proposed naval blockade of Athens]
Victoria: If force is... not an option with which to surprise your enemy... what other choice are there?
Lord Palmerston: You're the Queen of England and you can't get rid of your enemy by force?
Victoria: To do so would only damage the alliance I want back.
Lord Palmerston: In that case it may help to turn the enemy into your ally.

Interesting episode

Finally! We get to se Albert and Victoria doing something else besides of fighting. It again feels like season 1. In this episode, Victoria was trying really hard to regain Alberts's love and adoration. I feel bad for Sophie, who knows what will her husband really do to her now when he knows about her affair... Princess Feodora is bringing her daughter to palace...who knows what are these two up to...are they going to unite against Victoria? Who knows, we'll have to wait for new episodes.
