Synopsis

It is 1804 and the Court and the Government are in turmoil. Queen Victoria remains stricken with grief over Pince Albert's death and refuses to carry out any public duties, even State Opening Parliament. Her popularity with the British people is waning and there are calls to abolish the Monarchy. As a last resort, Sir Henry Ponsonby, the Queen's Private Secretary, summons John Brown, her loyal Scottish Attendant, down from Balmoral to walk the Queen's pony. Perhaps if she take some exercise, she will start to emerge from her mourning. Brown's arrival at the Court is the beginning of an extraordinary relationship. Scottish confident with no respect for either English or Court protocol, Brown quickly becomes the Queen's most trusted companion. The Queen, happy in Brown's company, withdraws even further from public life. Rumours of an affair begin to scandalize polite society and a crisis in the Monarchy seems inevitable.
