Victoria’s pregnancy raises the sticky topic of a Regency. As a result she names Albert as the head of state in case of her death. However the Tories are outraged by prospect of being ruled by a German prince.
Albert is still desperate to have more influence in the present. He proposes a trip to the rapidly industrializing North in an attempt to engage with the country at large. Far from the thrilling journey he anticipated, Albert is humiliated by his Tory hosts and confused by Victoria’s insensitivity.
In this hostile environment Albert finds a kindred spirit in Sir Robert Peel. To Albert’s delight Sir Robert invites Albert to visit his railway.
Below stairs, Lohlein is subject to similar antagonism for being foreign.
Back at the palace, Francatelli and Skerrett are starting to fall in love.
