New ar­rival at the Palace will keep Victoria amused

Daily Express - - NEWS - By Giles Sheldrick

JENNA Cole­man has won plau­dits as Queen Victoria but a new char­ac­ter is set to steal the show in to­mor­row night’s in­stal­ment of the ITV drama.

Af­ter bid­ding farewell to beloved cav­a­lier King Charles spaniel, Dash, in the last series, Victoria finds her­self smit­ten with a new ar­rival.

Is­lay, a beau­ti­ful white West High­land ter­rier puppy, is soon given the run of the palace.

Sadly no such bond­ing oc­curs with the Queen’s son, as Victoria finds her­self un­able to con­nect with the new Prince of Wales af­ter be­com­ing paral­ysed by an in­ex­pli­ca­ble sor­row af­ter a dif­fi­cult birth. Then tragic news sees Al­bert de­part for Ger­many – it is the first time the cou­ple have been apart since their wed­ding.

Victoria got Dash when she was just 13. He is buried in Wind­sor Home Park and a statue over his grave bears the in­scrip­tion: “Here lies Dash, the favourite spaniel of Her Majesty Queen Victoria.”

The next episode of Victoria is on ITV to­mor­row at 9pm.
