As the first queen in her own right since the Stuart period, she had plenty who would be against a female in power.

Simply the best: There’s a constant fascination with the British royal family, especially the likes of Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth, and Mary, Queen of Scots. In The Young Victoria, we get the story of Victoria before she becomes queen, when its clear that the throne will be left to her.

This is of the beautiful courtship between her and Prince Albert, seeing the love and devotion between the two. It gives you a real understanding as to why Victoria was so lost without him after his early death.

And that’s what makes this movie simply the best. Emily Blunt captures everything needed to make this movie a success.
