Summary Though he waited nearly 60 years to become king, and reigned for only nine, Edward VII changed the British monarchy forever. Derided by his mother, Queen Victoria, as frivolous and untrustworthy, Edward was in fact a skillful, determined diplomat who longed to be useful to his country. This miniseries dramatizes his life from frustrated prince and inveterate philanderer to loving father and respected statesman.
