Victoria has just turned 18 when she accedes to the throne in 1837. Brought up far away from court, she must try to distinguish between genuine friends and those pursuing their own ends. Her husband Albert will be an invaluable ally, helping her to establish herself as monarch. The very glamorous portrait of a compassionate and capable woman.
