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.

Uncertainty in the Throne
25 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are a couple issues at work here. One is Albert's need for attention. He is taking on the idea of a big technology exposition, inviting numerous countries to attend. Of course, it would be expensive. Victoria makes an offhand comment and nearly plunges England and Greece into war. Oh, and that stupid Duchess finally goes too far (fair or unfair) and incites that psychotic husband of hers. It will be interesting to see how this is resolved.
