What to expect from Victoria season 4?
The third season of the series that followed revolved around the Chartist movement that was widening in 19th-century London. The increasing pressure forced Victoria to leave. And go to Cornwall for a while for her safety. Upon arrival, however, the rift between Victoria’s estranged sister Feodora Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert, widened. This put their marriage in jeopardy. Elsewhere, London was a major problem with the outbreak of cholera, which claimed many lives, while Lord Palmerston did everything in his power to undermine the Queen.
Upon its return with Victoria Season 4, the show will pick up where the previous season ended. Not many details are known about the storyline of the fourth season.
