A failed assassination attempt by an Irish subject determines the royal household to visit this part of the realm, to check its peril after the great famine. So they accept an invitation to visit -with him- Lord Palmerston's castle estate there, in fact the residence of his equally mundane wife, Emily. In between formal receptions, like a rapprochement with the most influential cardinal Ronan, Albert and Victoria sternly question the lord about the plight of his tenants, but he has all the right answers ready, and his 'libertarian' marriage, with mutual consent to entertain lovers as they're generally on different British isles. Back in Buckingham palace, Feodora enjoys the trappings of holding 'regency court', only to be discredited as she fails, unlike footman Brodie, to notice the price of the success of the unorthodox tutor Albert engaged for Bertie.

Visiting the Emerald Isle
17 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When Victoria decides to visit Ireland, it sets up a strange series of events. Part of it is the usual discomfort involved with a political and religious fact of life. But ) more than that is the realities of the arrogance and self fulfillment (in the worst possible way) of the British monarchy. The queen comes off as such an innocent at times. Her servants and her royal politicians are such flawed creatures, but they are allowed to be up front about their activities.
