The Royal family are fans of ITV’s Victoria
Apparently we aren’t the only ones who will be missing ITV’s hit period drama Victoria on Sunday nights.
Series writer Daisy Goodwin has revealed that she’s heard the Royal family are big fans of the show, which focuses on the Queen’s great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.
She told The Daily Star: “I know someone who is a very old friend of the Queen’s and I was told that the Royal family is enjoying it hugely. Whether that means the Queen is enjoying it, I don’t know.
“But I know that other people in her circles are enjoying it.”
Victoria concluded a very successful reign of Sunday night TV last weekend, with the birth of Victoria and Prince Albert’s first child.
The show has already been commissioned for a second series and a Christmas special for 2017.
However, Goodwin also revealed that we nearly got to see a bit more of Victoria in 2016. Apparently, she pitched an idea for a Christmas 2016 special to bosses at ITV, but they didn’t take her up on the offer.
She reckons “they are wishing they had one now”, after the show’s success.
