The critically acclaimed historical drama Victoria starring Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria and Tom Hughes as her husband Prince Albert, continues its second series with the third episode airing on Sunday 10 September at 9.00pm. Also appearing are Dame Diana Rigg, Ferdinand Kingsley and Nell Hudson.
Discontent is growing across the country and on hearing the pleas of a silk weaver of Spitalfields, Victoria decides she must help. Against Peel (Nigel Lindsay) and Albert’s advice, she plans a fantastic medieval ball at the Palace where the attendees have to wear costumes made from Spitalfields silk.
Whilst Albert does not agree with the plan, he is soon seduced by the grandeur of the event, and by the opportunity to finally wear
a crown. The ball provides the perfect backdrop for old friends to reunite and new romances to blossom, but not everyone can have what they want.
In the aftermath of the ball it becomes clear Victoria’s naïve actions have hindered more than helped the mood of the country. She comes under a humiliating attack from parliament and the masses. As Victoria and Albert attempt to make amends, they are struck by an unexpected tragedy.
Victoria Season 2 Episode 3 airs Sunday 10 September 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
