As we reach tonight’s finale, the young Queen is most definitely not amused – she is tired of being pregnant, scared at the prospect of giving birth and irked by Albert’s apparent lack of sympathy for her plight.

She’s got even more to worry about, though – including the Duke of Cumberland (Peter Firth, who’s clearly having a great time as the villain) who, as heir presumptive, is ghoulishly waiting in the wings should Victoria unfortunately happen to die in childbirth.

Meanwhile, below stairs, there’s a dilemma for Miss Skerrett as Francatelli presents her with an offer that’s as tempting as it is risky…

A second series of Victoria is already in the works – royally good news!
