A Royal Affair

The beautiful young Queen Caroline’s passionate love affair with a progressive German doctor changed a nation forever.  This epic period drama involving the Danish Royal family is based upon a true story, in which an ordinary man becomes central to Court power plays in the 18th century.  A push for a more enlightened approach to ruling the country is jeopardised as the Queen’s husband, King Christian, becomes increasingly mad, and opponents of reform seek to exploit a scandalous affair.
