January 1858: Britain's Princess Victoria marries Fritz, Prince Frederick, heir to the powerful kingdom of Prussia, which they hope will become a liberal and united Germany. Vicky struggles to thrive in the constrained Prussian court, but gallant Fritz is always by her side, as they navigate court intrigue, and challenge the cunning Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, while fighting for the throne. Clare McHugh tells the riveting story of Victoria, the Princess Royal, from her younger years as the apple of her father Albert's eyes to her final months of life, when she realizes that her son—the future Kaiser Wilhelm—will reject all that she and Fritz stand for.
