Victoria 'Brocket Hall' Recap – Confessions
Another week means another Sunday night spent in the palace of Queen Victoria. Step inside and you’ll discover a world of intrigue, politics and beauty.
Tonight’s installment covers a lot of ground, so before I’m tempted to say more in this introduction, let’s get to the important bit: the recap.
Spearheaded by her uncle, Victoria comes under pressure to take a husband. An English cousin is put forth (a match met favorably by the British) while the Russian czar also reenters Victoria’s life. At present, Victoria has little aptitude to marry.
Leopold wishes Victoria to marry his nephew, Albert. Albert is educated and would be the perfect match for Victoria. Or so Leopold thinks. An advantage to seeing Victoria marry would be having a man in her life other than Melbourne who Leopold dislikes. He sees Victoria’s attachment to the man, and suffice to say, he doesn’t like it.
