Storyline

Albert and Victoria are shocked to find the printer lucratively sold to the press some private family scene etchings, but the Pm points out there's no advisable legal recourse and Lord Palmerston that a 'common family people' image renders the dynasty human, not ridicule. Joseph warns the duchess, his discrete lover, against her husband's plan to subtly expose her as aristocratic slut by suggesting an heirloom costume. Wit Belgian king-uncle Leopold attending a grand court ball, Albert mistakes Victoria's suspicion of Feodora as another symptom of her petty arrogance, but the plotting sister's shameless greed is finally exposed.

Quotes

[Victoria is horrified and embarrassed that private sketches of her at home bathing her children and playing with her dogs are now being sold on the street. Now she has discovered that a new coin, bearing her portrait and already in circulation, omits the standard wording "Dei Gratia"]
Victoria: "Dei Gratia". "By the grace of God". It's on *every* coin. Every coin, Prime Minister, except this one. I hear they're calling it "the Godless florin". First the etchings and now this.
Lord John Russell: Rest assured, ma'am, we will...

What an Odd World
18 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

With the birth of Victoria's seventh child, a ball is planned to celebrate the christening. Victoria is shamed when private pictures of her bathing a small child appear in a London newspaper. Her sister is behind this and continues to undermine her status, taking payment for doing just that. Albert, the whiney, reactionary clueless husband, thinks everything this woman says is true. He is constantly responding to what Victoria suspects as her air-headed, shortsighted conclusions. He thinks he knows best. He brings in a phrenologist to measure Bertie'a (the heir apparent to the throne's) head. Apparently, his stupidity quotient is quite high and there is little hope for him. Albert has been on the boy from birth, demeaning who he is and taking any joy out of his life. The boy is a little twerp, but a created one. Albert seems to think that he needs to be kingly from the age of 11. There is also continuing sexual activity between the Dutchess and the big hunk of a courtier. There are two episodes to show how this will play out with her domineering husband just coming into knowledge of what is going on. Albert is becoming more and more boorish. He is not the king and never will be. Victoria is compassionate to her subjects and he can't seem to figure that out, resenting every move she makes to be the people's queen.
