Victoria returns to ITV this weekend for a third season, and we’ve got our first look at what’s in store for the royal drama.
The show’s third run once again sees Jenna Coleman reprise her role as the young Queen, alongside Tom Hughes as Prince Albert. Starting in 1848, the third instalment of the drama depicts a turbulent and uncertain time for both Europe and the monarchy. With revolutions on the continent and the Chartist movement reaching its peak in London, Victoria is under pressure from the government to leave London for her own safety.
Joining the leads, Laurence Fox (Lewis) plays charismatic and wayward Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston, whilst Tony and Olivier Award nominee Kate Fleetwood (Harlots) takes the role of Victoria’s mysterious sister Feodora, who makes an unexpected return into the Queen’s life. In addition, actor and comedian John Sessions (The Loch) stars as Prime Minister John Russell, while Lily Travers (Kingsman) plays the Duchess of Monmouth. Nicholas Audsley (The White Princess), David Burnett (The Mummy) and Sabrina Bartlett (Versailles) also join the cast as new characters.
Produced by leading drama indie Mammoth Screen as a co-production with Masterpiece, and created by writer and producer Daisy Goodwin, Season 3 begins with Victoria heavily pregnant and shocked by the unexpected arrival of her half-sister, Feodora, and the deposed King of the French, while the Chartist movement threatens the monarchy and Victoria must confront the fact that her people may wish to end her reign.
Season 3 premieres at 9pm on Sunday 24th March on ITV, with new episodes airing weekly for eight weeks. Watch the trailer below. Never seen Victoria?
