    Summary

    "And Lord Melbourne, my dearest." Albert traces fingertips over her neck, just over the place that makes her shiver. "I do not wish to be a cruel husband. I don't want to force you to only love me." Albert's hands cup Victoria's face when he notices her glistening eyes, tears collecting under her eyes. "I know how much you love Lord Melbourne and I don't want to take that away from you. Victoria, Liebchen, you are so full of love. What right do I have to take that away from you?"

    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

Peel brings in his executive assistant Edward Drummond with a brief to make changes especially at the top, changes which will not be popular.

    How will Alfred and Edward handle their growing attraction for each other in the office especially when Edward's work for Sir Robert may threaten everyone Alfred cares about at Buckingham Consulting? and how will Edward balance his ambition with his feelings for Alfred?

    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

    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

    Lord Alfred Paget and Mr. Edward Drummond have been stubbornly avoiding each other the last few days. But when Alfred writes a letter to his Edward, there is nothing - not even an attempted assassination on the Prime Minister - that will stop Edward from making the engagement. Oysters and champagne can lead to quite a time...

    Doubt thou the stars are fire;
    Doubt that the sun doth move;
    Doubt truth to be a liar;
    But never doubt I love.
