    Summary

    Edward Drummond has been shot in an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Robert Peel. The news shakes up London, but nowhere more than at Buckingham Palace. There, a young man by the name of Lord Alfred Paget finds himself wondering what the future will hold. He is torn between the love he feels for the attractive young politician and the fear of what this love might do to their reputation, and their lives. Now more than ever, London is a dangerous place to be for men like him. He must decide if he will fight for the man he loves, or if the risk is too great.

    Summary

    This story was inspired by the Victoria series, of the English channel ITV, whose first season premiered in Portugal in 2017, in 8 episodes in RTP1, and in the book by Daisy Goodwin, with the same title, published in 2016, by Review. In some points it uses some of Daisy Goodwin's phrases.
    My starting point was to answer, in a fictional way, the question: what could have happened if Queen Victoria of England had not asked Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gota in marriage? Based on the mutually profound relationship she had with his prime minister - William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne - what dynamic could have been established between them from that moment?
    The text I publish here begin at the end of episode 4 of the series and on page 454 of the book and presents one of several possible fictional answers to this question.

    Summary

    Este texto foi inspirado na série Victoria, do canal inglês ITV, cuja primeira temporada passou em Portugal em 2017, em 8 episódios, na RTP1, e no livro de Daisy Goodwin, com o mesmo título, publicado em 2016, pela Review. Em alguns pontos usa algumas frases de Daisy Goodwin.
    O nosso ponto de partida foi responder, de forma ficcionada, à pergunta: e se a rainha Victoria de Inglaterra não tivesse pedido Albert de Saxe-Coburgo-Gota em casamento? Tendo por base a relação mutuamente profunda que tinha com o seu primeiro-ministro – William Lamb, 2º Visconde Melbourne – que dinâmica se poderia ter estabelecido entre eles a partir desse momento?
    O texto que aqui publicamos, e que começa no final do episódio 4 da série e na página 454 do livro, apresenta uma das várias respostas ficcionadas possíveis para essa questão.

    Summary

    She was young, he’d been right, and so small. She couldn’t have been much above five feet tall, and it certainly had been an odd sensation looking down at his new monarch. But there was a strength in her voice – a strength with a tremor, for sure, and a lot of fake confidence that anyone with any observational skills would see right through – but a strength that had surprised him, given her history. She hadn’t been completely cowed by Conroy, he thought a little triumphantly. There was a fire in her eyes, an eagerness to succeed, but a wariness. She couldn’t hide her fear, no matter how imperiously she looked at him, how high she held her chin.

    Or, the one where Lord Melbourne becomes Private Secretary to a twenty-two-year-old Queen Victoria sometime in 2017.

    Summary

    From the diary of Prince Ernest II, Duke of Saxa-Coburg... 

    "I am not a person to pause and reflect, I do not keep a personal record as I had always feared that it would fall into more innocent hands and shame me terribly, should I record all of my colourful history, and if I am honest I do not care to scrutinize my motivations and feelings overmuch..." 

    Or, the story of Harriet, Duchess of Sutherland and Ernest II, from Ernest' point of view.

    Summary

    He stares out at the trees, the land grey with the bitter hues of impending winter. The temperature had dropped considerably over the past week and the ground had transformed from a slushy mess to a frosty, slippery solid underfoot each morning, a sure sign that snow was on the way. Early this year, he thinks. Of course. Everything seemed to be going their way – finally – so why not ruin it with a little bit of snow at the start of November?
    Snow meant Christmas.

    Summary

    Victoria once asked him if he was happy before. "Yes", of course he answered. But he was happy here too, even if nothing was meant to last forever. The fragile happiness that they had harvested couldn't survive more Princes and Grand Dukes and Melbourne was ready to once more write himself out of the narrative, even if it hurt more than losing his son. He tries to reject her, once at the coronation ball, twice at Brocket Hall and attempts at thrice but Victoria, as per usual, doesn’t go along with his plan.
