NEW Characters
Victoria has a half-sister Princess Feodora of Leiningen (Kate Fleetwood). I thought Victoria was an only child. Obviously not ;) Then there's the foreign secretary Lord Palmerston (Laurence Fox). Everything about him is unscrupulous. There is Duchess Sophie of Monmouth (Lily Travers), who is Victoria's new Mistress of the Robes. Seems like she is looking for love in all the wrong places. Ha Ha You have Abigail Turner (Sabrina Bartlett) who is a Chartist Seamstress. There's also an intriguing new footman, Joseph Weld (David Burnett). This definitely keeps the show interesting.

Victoria & Albert The Wedding
This is a two-part series that goes into detail (reconstructs) Victoria's Wedding Day (February 1840). It's narrated by Lucy Worsley. I love her! She makes history so easy to understand and FUN! She's amazing and has done a number of tv shows about the royals. For this, she talks to a number of experts on the topic. Here is the link.
