Victoria: Do you ever feel like a chess piece yourself? In a game being played against your will?
Albert: Do you?
Victoria: Constantly. I see them leaning in and moving me around the board.
Albert: The Duchess and Sir John?
Victoria: Not just them. Uncle Leopold. The King. I'm sure half the politicians are ready to seize hold of my skirts and drag me from square to square.
Albert: Then master the rules of the game until you play it better than they can.
Victoria: You don't recommend I find a husband to play it for me?
Albert: I should find one to play it with you, not for you.
Victoria: Why don't we ring for some music? And then we could dance. I've recently discovered the waltz and I am quite in love with it.
Albert: Waltzing is not really my forte.
Victoria: Oh, dear. What a shame.
Duchess of Kent: Victoria. You must come now.
Sir John Conroy: Long live the Queen.
Victoria: I'm going back to bed. I imagine Lord Melbourne will be here quite early. Make sure he has everything he needs if I am not ready to receive him.
Lehzen: Of course, Your Royal...Your Majesty.
Duchess of Kent: Victoria, wait. I will hold your hand.
Victoria: No. Thank you, Mama. And, Lehzen, in the morning, arrange for my bed to be moved into a room of my own?
Duchess of Kent: Surely there's no need...
Victoria: As soon as possible, Lehzen
Lehzen: The Council is assembled, Your Majesty.
Attendant: Her Majesty.
Victoria: It is with a sense of reverence and honour that I address you, my Privy Councillors, as your Sovereign and Queen. I mourn sincerely the death of my dear uncle, the King, but I know I may count on you to serve me as loyally as you served him. I am young, but I am willing to learn.And I mean to devote my life to the service of my country and my people. I look for your help in this. I know I shall not be disappointed. Thank you.

Victoria: Yes, but you can't move.
Albert: There's nothing to rival an English garden.
Victoria: Of all my life in Kensington, it's the only part I'll miss.
Albert: But the gardens at Buckingham Palace, surely...
Victoria: You're moving! Oh. Now you're smiling. Impossible! You're worst than him!

Victoria: Good morning.
Victoria: How dare you speak to me in that way before them. How dare you... talk across me, as if I were a child.
Albert: I... I did no such thing.
Victoria: Oh, no? Well, you've sorted this, you've sorted that. You and Sir Robert. You and the Duke. All without reference to me!
Albert: Victoria, I thought you'd be pleased.
Victoria: I will tell you what you thought. You thought that I was a woman! To be petted and passed over and ignored!
Albert: Would it were so simple then we might avoid more scandals of your making.
Victoria: Have you lost your mind?!
Albert: Do you wonder at it? Less than three years on the throne and you and your precious Melbourne have pushed this monarchy to the brink of an abyss!
Victoria: I've told you before and I will again, you are my husband here, and that is all!
Albert: And that is quite enough, believe me!
Victoria: I will not have my role usurped! I wear the crown. Any mistakes will be my mistakes, and no one else will make them. No one! Not even you!
Albert: I'm leaving before you excite yourself and harm the child.
Victoria: You will go when I dismiss you. I am your Queen and I am telling you to stay.
Albert: Goodnight, Victoria.
Victoria: You may not go. You may not go! I order you to stay here in this room! Albert!
