Plot

Discontent is growing in the country, and upon hearing the pleas of a silk weaver of Spitalfields, Victoria decides she must help. Against Robert Peel and her husband Albert’s advice, the Queen decides to have a fantastic medieval ball at Buckingham Palace, where the attendees have to wear costumes made from Spitalfields silk.  

Meanwhile, having received no recent news from Lord Melbourne, Victoria grows increasingly concerned. She sends Emma Portman to check up on her old friend to make sure all is well.
