However, Jenna Coleman, who portrays Queen Victoria on screen, recently opened up about the importance of having the intimate scenes with her on screen and off screen partner Tom Hughes in the series.

"I think sex was a huge part of their relationship. They were a young couple, completely and utterly in love, who went on to have nine children," Coleman told Radio times. "Albert to her was a hero, she adored him, and sex was a huge part of that."

Besides this, the Doctor Who star also hinted at her character in the ITV series, saying, "A lot of what we're telling in this series is the expectation that as soon as Victoria was a mother, then Albert would take over and she would be in the nursery."

"But Victoria, being incredibly stubborn and forthright, kicked against that and in the first few years of their marriage that caused a lot of strife."

Victoria season 2 premieres on August 27 at 9.05 pm on ITV (UK). The royal drama will later be available on PBS for all the US viewers.
