The critically acclaimed historical drama starring Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria and Tom Hughes as her husband Prince Albert, continues its second series with episode 4 on Sunday 17 September at 9.00pm on ITV. Also starring are Dame Diana Rigg, Nigel Lindsay, Ferdinand Kingsley and Nell Hudson.
There is celebration throughout the Royal Court at the arrival of a healthy Prince of Wales, but Victoria does not appear to share in the delight. The Queen is paralysed by an inexplicable sorrow and unable to bond with her son. When tragic news arrives from Coburg, Albert is forced to leave Victoria and return to his childhood home – the first time the couple have been apart since they wed.
In Coburg, Albert learns a dark family secret and begins to unravel. Back at the palace, Skerrett’s (Hudson) blunder threatens to put Francatelli (Kingsley) in the firing line, unless she is willing to expose her deepest secret. A reluctant revelation from Drummond (Leo Suter) threatens to end his tentative friendship with Lord Alfred (Jordan Waller). With Albert locked away in his own private torment, Victoria must find the courage to face her national duty.
Victoria Season 2 Episode 4 airs Sunday 17 September 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
