Time for another bejeweled recap of Masterpiece's Victoria, everybody! If you've missed any previous posts, head over here for a refresher.
Also, those of you who watch lots of royal-related TV will probably recognize David Oakes, the actor who plays Ernst. He was the ill-fated Duke of Clarence in The White Queen.
Victoria, who is wearing a fashionable ferronnière, is a little amused and disturbed that people will have to lick her face before sending a letter. Her observation cracks up everyone in the room, except for -- you guessed it! -- Albert. He really was a killjoy.
Am I the only one wondering who in the world is in charge of Belgium while Leopold's off playing matchmaker?
Stay tuned for the next installment of The Adventures of Vic 'n Al -- the post will be up bright and early on Monday morning!
