Victoria creator Daisy Goodwin shares insights to the intriguing season in the video, above.
Victoria Season 3 on Masterpiece opens in 1848, Europe’s year of revolutions. A pregnant Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is feeling more protective of her realm than ever, but also vulnerable. Beyond issues of sovereignty, she fields a rocky time with both her husband Albert (Tom Hughes) and her unwelcome house visitor, her half-sister Feodora (Kate Fleetwood). New to the season, the real life figure Lord Palmerston (Laurence Fox) injects irreverent banter to the series, though he does pose problems and more annoyances for Victoria.

Royal Wives at War
Sunday, December 15 at 10 p.m.
This unusual look England’s abdication crisis of 1936 comes from the view of the two women at its very heart. In a series of dramatized monologues set in 1967, Elizabeth the Queen Mother (Emma Davies) and Wallis Simpson (Gina McKee) look back at the dramatic events, which led to the British King, Edward VIII (Nick Waring), giving up the throne for the American woman he loved, Wallis. Combining dramatic reconstructions, archival material and a chorus of real-life acquaintances and biographers, it tells the story of two strong women drawn into a bitter feud over their two weak husbands.
Royal Wives at War is streaming now through January 12, 2020. Become a member of THIRTEEN and stream Royal Wives at War any time with the member benefit THIRTEEN Passport.

The two-part series airs Sunday, December 22 and Sunday, December 29 at 10 p.m.
Lucy Worsley (host of Christmas Carols and Lucy Worsley’s 12 Days of Tudor Christmas this December) and her team reconstruct the royal wedding in 1840 that changed history and wedding customs. The couple’s lavish wedding breakfast harkened back to England’s Georgian period.
