The documentary included a fairly good glimpse into the personal life of Queen Victoria and her hubby Prince Albert. There are the usual interesting tidbits, such as the fact that protocol required her to propose to him. To my surprise though, I found their relationship really touching. There was so much mutual respect and affection, something that has been extremely rare when it comes to the royals we've covered so far.

There were so many political accomplishments and improvements made during her reign, but isn't it interesting that when you think of Victoria as a woman, you almost always think of Albert as well?
There is nothing in life so fulfilling as a marriage that is successful!
