Lillie: Let Them Say (S1EP6 ITV 29 Oct 1978, Cheryl Campbell)



Let Them Say: Bertie, the Prince of Wales, has gone to great lengths to impress Lillie–even building her a country house in Bournemouth. When Austria’s Crown Prince Rudolf pays an official visit to London, Lillie becomes the focus of Rudolfs impetuous nature. His behavior does not sit will with Lillie or Bertie, and Rudolf is unceremoniously banished from the country. A short time later, after a cold public reception from Queen Victoria, Lillie retreats to her country home with Arthur Jones. While her love for Arthur grows, she cannot bear to leave the royal spotlight for Jersey’s provincial obscurity.
