The Young Victoria (2009)
“The Young Victoria” will focus on the first, often turbulent, years of the monarch’s rule. She became queen at 18, and her legendary romance and marriage to Prince Albert. Devastated by her husband’s death in 1861, she wore black for the rest of her life and remained largely secluded. Broadbent will play King William, Victoria’s uncle, while Richardson has been cast as the Duchess of Kent, Victoria’s mother. They join Emily Blunt as Victoria and Rupert Friend as her husband, Prince Albert.
