The Young Victoria (2009)

The Young Victoria tells the story of Queen Victoria's early rise to power.  On the eve of her 18th birthday and succession to the English throne, young Princess Victoria is caught in a royal power struggle.  But it is her blooming love affair and marriage to Prince Albert that will determine the strength of her reign.  Can she dedicate her life to her country and her heart to the one man she truly loves?

Discover the passion and romance behind one of history's greatest love stories.







I really like the proposal, wedding and honeymoon scenes! :) The only part of the film that isn't historically accurate is that Prince Albert was never shot during an assassination attempt on Queen Victoria.  However, the prince did put his body before the queen as protection on one occasion, I believe. 

 I also love the costumes and Emily Blunt and Rupert Friend are both great as Victoria and Albert :) xx
