In this final episode, prime minister Peel (Nigel Lindsay) is fighting the most important battle of his career. In parliament, he has to face the consequences of taking a stand against the Corn Laws.

Tensions are running high in the palace, as the relationship between Victoria, Albert and Victoria’s confidante Lehzen (Daniela Holtz) is pushed to breaking point. Albert is growing increasingly frustrated about the control that he perceives Lehzen to have over his wife, especially when the health of their children is at stake. The prospect of having to live without their respective crutches creates a rift between Victoria and Albert. However, when tragedy strikes, sacrifices in their personal and political lives will have to be made.
