Being Queen always seemed like such a good gig. You get to wear gorgeous dresses and enormous jewels, live in a palace and tell people what to do.

But as THE YOUNG VICTORIA proves, being Queen can also be really, really hard. Based on the true story, Victoria (the exquisite Emily Blunt) must fight against opposing forces within the royal family to claim her independence and exert her power as the new Queen.

As she wrestles for control amidst political manipulations and back-stabbing, Victoria discovers a universal truth-- everything feels better when you’re in the company of a handsome man. After she meets Prince Albert (Rupert Friend), their friendship evolves into an epic romance that will leave you sighing wistfully with your hand over your heart. (You should also plan on using that hand for fist pumping, because Victoria is a total badass.)

Feel like royalty, minus the stress, at this month’s edition of Afternoon Tea, where you can sip on tea, snack on treats and ascend the throne of refined entertainment. (Sarah Pitre)
