Warp and Weft is the third episode of the second series. Two beloved characters make their exit during this episode.
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, she decides to have a fantastic medieval ball at the Palace, where the attendees have to wear costumes made from Spitalfields silk.
Despite his initial protests, and struggling to find his place as a Prince Consort and husband, Albert decides that he will wear a crown. When the ball arrives, it provides the perfect backdrop for old friends to reunite and romances to ignite, but it doesn’t receive the positive response from the nation that Victoria had hoped.
