A dramatization of the turbulent first years of Queen Victoria's rule, and her enduring romance with Prince Albert.
The 'seaside' scenes were filmed at Belvoir Castle, approximately 70 miles from the sea. The 'sand' is actually on the terrace (roof of the ground floor) of the castle. The surrounding Vale of Belvoir was digitally replaced with 'seawater'.
Duchess of Sutherland:
Look at that demure little head. And all of us wondering what's inside it.
Lord Melbourne: We'll find out soon enough.
About 6 minutes into the film, a scene with the subtitle "Rosenau Castle, Coburg, Germany" shows snow-covered mountains in the background. The closest snow-covered mountains to Coburg are the Bavarian Alps, 350km away.
In the on-screen credits, Heidi Miller and George Sayer are each listed twice as Costume Assistant.
