Summary

The second tie-in to ITV drama Victoria unveils the complex, passionate relationship of Victoria and Albert.

What happened after the Queen married her handsome prince? Did they live happily ever after, or did their marriage, like so many royal marriages past and present, fizzle into a loveless bond of duty? Victoria and Albert were the royal couple that broke the mould - it may have been an arranged match, yet their union was a passionate, tempestuous relationship between two extremely strong-willed individuals.

Despite the fact that they were first cousins, they could not have been more different people - she was impulsive, emotional, capricious, while he was cautious, self-controlled and logical. But together they became the most successful royal couple there had ever been, and this book reveals the private and the public faces of Victoria and Albert's marriage. Using their letters and diaries, Victoria and Albert charts the constant ebb and flow of power between the couple and presents a picture of a very modern marriage.

This companion audiobook, full of rich historical detail, takes fans deeper into that period than ever before. Discover the inner workings behind the scenes, with profiles of all the major characters, interviews with the actors and fascinating, in-depth information on the production, the costumes and the props.
