Queen Charlotte's life in two distinct eras, 1761 and 1817, magnificently depicted!
Contracted by her brother to marry a man she’s never met who happens to be the king of England, Charlotte tries to escape just before the wedding, which of course is when she meets King George, and they fall deeply, passionately, in love. As do the king’s valet and the queen’s royal attendant, whose long-simmering, unallowable relationship is proved to be not only of desire and lust, but of a longstanding deep-seated love.
