In the twilight years of her reign, after the devastating deaths of her two great lovesPrince Albert and John BrownQueen Victoria meets tall and handsome Abdul Karim, a humble servant from Agra waiting tables at her Golden Jubilee. The two form an unlikely bond and within a year Abdul becomes a powerful figure at court, the Queens teacher, her counsel on Urdu and Indian affairs, and a friend close to her heart. This marked the beginning of the most scandalous decade in Queen Victorias long reign. As the royal household roiled with resentment, Victoria and Abduls devotion grew in defiance.
