The new season of Victoria has started filming.
The period drama series launched on ITV last August and follows Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman) from her accession to the throne at the tender age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert.
A second season was announced by ITV last September, before the first season had even finished airing.
Several photos have appeared online, showing that filming is well underway…

Victoria is currently airing in the US on Sunday nights on PBS, in the slot traditionally taken by Downton Abbey.
Writer Daisy Goodwin teased last year: “Even though she reigned in the 19th Century, Victoria is a heroine for our times. In [Season 2] she faces the very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job. As Victoria will discover, it’s hard to be a wife, a mother and ruler of the most powerful nation on earth!”
The cast of Victoria gathered earlier this month to read through the first scripts for the new season.
Season 2 will air on ITV this autumn, followed by a Christmas special.
