Wow. Sure, I at least knew a little about Queen Victoria's over-the-top and decades long mourning for her husband, but until I watched tonight's show on SBS "Queen Victoria's Children" I didn't appreciate what a nutty, harsh, control freak of a (literal) drama Queen she was with her sons. The show featured extracts from many of her letters, and to call her "candid" in her assessments of them and their lives would be a hilarious understatement.
This was the last of 3 episodes, but I missed the previous ones. The second is still available on SBS on Demand for another week, so I must go watch it.
