The cast of ITV’s upcoming drama about the early life of Queen Victoria have celebrated the end of the shoot with a wrap party.

The eight-part series stars former Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman and began filming last year.

From the makers of BBC One’s Poldark, Victoria follows Queen Victoria (Coleman) from her accession to the throne at the tender age of 18 through to her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years.
