Despite protest from the royal household Queen Victorias interest in Abdul, his culture and his customs flourished and she became ever more determined to keep Abdul close to her side, promoting him to Royal clerk before engaging
him as her personal teacher. As the friendship deepened the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.
