A saga of interlocking circles, stretching from the upper echelons of the royal court to the below-stairs staff, this is a story of passionate affairs, power struggles and unrequited love, at the centre of which stands the new Queen - a strong, complex and wilful woman who must, somehow, become an enduring icon.
