ITV has released a trailer for the Victoria Christmas special, which is set to premiere on Christmas Day (Monday December 25th) at 9pm, it has been announced.

The feature-length special is set in Christmas 1846 and sees Victoria uncharacteristically melancholy as she prepares to tackle her first Christmas without her beloved Baroness Lehzen. Pregnant with her and Albert’s fourth child, the festive period reminds her of her lonely childhood spent at Kensington. Albert, on the other hand is gripped by an obsession with staging the perfect family Christmas, transforming the palace into a magical festive wonderland. Tensions arise between him and Victoria, however, when Albert invites some unwelcome house guests to join the celebrations.
