Publisher's Summary

More than 16 million viewers watched the first season of the Masterpiece presentation of Victoria, created and written by Daisy Goodwin - the highest rated PBS drama in 20 years, second only to Downton Abbey.

But what happened after the queen married her handsome prince? Did they live happily ever after, or did their marriage, like so many royal marriages past and present, fizzle into a loveless round of duty? This all-new companion audiobook by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan transports listeners to the private world of Victoria and Albert. Though first cousins, they could not have been more different: Victoria was impulsive, emotional, and capricious, Albert cautious, self-controlled, and logical. But together they forged a bond with each other and with their people that would change the world.

Drawing on letters and diaries and fresh insights into royal history, this compelling audiobook charts the constant ebb and flow of power within the couple's surprisingly ardent and modern marriage. Expertly arranged and full of rich insider detail, Victoria & Albert takes listeners behind the scenes of the magnificent TV drama, including fascinating, in-depth information on the actors, the props, and the costumes - and bringing an extraordinary royal marriage even more fully to life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Good book for Queen Victoria & Prince Albert fans

What did you love best about Victoria & Albert?

The overall history of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. I liked that the book didn't just cover the happier moments of the Victorian Era but also the darker moments.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Prince Albert. He's a strong person who entered an unwelcoming country and fought to be something more than just the Queen's foreign husband.

Any additional comments?

This book is not a sequel to "Victoria". This book is more a biography about Queen Victoria and Prince Albert with small snippets of behind the scenes of the tv series, Victoria.
