The young Queen, as well has having to endure her constant pregnancies, is in perpetual revolt against any encroachment on her position – and Albert is doing just that. Despite attempts on her life and crises like the Crimean War and the Indian Mutiny, her family – Albert and their nine children – is her prime concern. The Victorian age is truly under way – but the real power behind the throne was the queen’s husband. One of our best historical novelists’ News Chronicle.

The Prince was also intellectually inclined and much more intelligent than his wife.

Hibbert's last Jean Plaidy book The Rose Without a Thorn was published posthumously. MacRae Smith Co. of Philadelphia published Jean Plaidy titles in the United States. The Queen's Husband (1973). Hibbert also wrote four non-fiction books under the pseudonym Jean Plaidy.

The other three were a trilogy on the Spanish Inquisition: The Rise (1959), The Growth (1960) and The End (1961). The Widow of Windsor (1974).

Almost every day there were cartoons in which the central figures were Victoria and Albert. Stories of their differences seeped out of the Palace. A certain amount of pleasure was expressed at this state of affairs. Some might call him handsome – so he was in a pretty sort of way. But the ideal Englishman did not look like Albert, who was more like a pretty girl dressed up as a man. The way he sat his horse was foreign

Victoria and Albert have been destined for each other since birth. However, the passive Albert is well aware that marriage to a quick-tempered, demonstrative young woman like Victoria could result in unnecessary scenes and stormy court feuds. He is right. The young queen, as well as having to endure her constant pregnancies, is in constant revolt against anyone encroaching on her position - and Albert is doing just that. Despite attempts on her life and political crises, her family remains her prime concern, but who really holds the power behind the throne - the queen or her husband?

Albert and Victoria were a once in a lifetime love match. He was king in her heart when he couldn't be in truth.

They meet and fall instantly in love, more so on her part than his. She is fiery, passionate and quick. He is solid, thoughtful and stern. They are complete opposites who worked very well together and produced the heyday of the Victorian Era, and nine children who would all go on to marry into various royal houses to populate Europe with their descendents.

But all is not always well in their world. There are still scandals. Victoria is still very stubborn and makes herself very hard to work with. There are wars, people disliking Albert for no other reason than that he is German. They have their fights at home and fights with their oldest child, Bertie, eventual Edward VII.

I really liked this book because I got a much better feel for Albert in this one than I did from Plaidy's book Victoria Victorious. I felt like he was more developed as character and as a man than in the other work (which is still a good book,)

Of course this one ends with his untimely demise, and you are just as saddened as she is because you do grow to love Albert in a very affectionate, if not always agreeable way.

I love Jean Plaidy’s historical fiction. Yes, they’re a bit repetitive, and yes, she could have benefitted from a better editor, but her novels are still informative and entertaining. I would like to think I learn something new from every book of hers that I read.

I originally believed this was a romance, but it’s a true historical. The older style of writing doesn’t slow down the enjoyment. The story is shallow for my taste however - when it comes to historicals, I like meat and depth.

The second book in Plaidy's series about Queen Victoria, this book concerns the beginning of her reign and her dealings with her first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne.

Awakened that fateful morning to find that she is queen, she's rapidly introduced to the delicacies and intricacies of court life by her Prime Minister. A man who sees her as a doll to be dressed, a piece of clay to be moulded. This isn't as sinister as it sounds, but Melbourne felt that if he could make her into something great, she would be great. And in this, he was right.

Victoria had a passionate affair with him, but not in the regular sense. She wanted him there always to advise and gossip with her; Plaidy makes their relationship one that is very interesting t watch. He loves her, she loves him. It is platonic, but fulfilling.

But all isn't well. Melbourne is not perfect and he allows Victoria to wonder into traps when she didn't have to. The Flora Hasting's Affair damaged the queen's reputation needlessly. She wasn't always properly informed when she should have been. And he did use her for his own ends. She also is allowed to continue her stubborn ways which were detrimental to her.

Some parts of the book drag on because Plaidy does tend to repeat herself when she really doesn't need to. But it's a tolerably good book.

I thought the story was very well written . I have never read any books written by Jean Plaidy and truly enjoyed this one.
This was not one of Plaidy's better books. Victoria does not come across as very interesting. On the contrary, she is very needy and poorly written. Plaidy has done better.
