Gloriana…Hallelujah! Victoria series two isn’t far away and our appetites have been whetted with another sneak peek picture of stars Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes from the upcoming series.
Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert look pretty pensive in the snap for the new run, which will follow their fortunes as their family expands.
ITV has already released a video of the Queen and her husband at the baptism of their baby daughter, who was born in the series one finale.
Series two will see the young monarch struggling with her new maternal role with creator Daisy Goodwin suggesting that the course of true love “does not run smooth” for Victoria and Albert.
There will be eight episodes in the upcoming second season, featuring Dame Diana Rigg and Line of Duty’s Martin Compston in new roles.
Victoria is due to return to ITV in the autumn, with a two-hour Christmas special following in December
