This month sees the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth and with that in mind BBC2 has a regal line-up of programmes tonight.

Following a repeat of Lucy Worsley’s Victoria & Albert: The Royal Wedding comes The Young Victoria, the Oscar-winning drama written by Downton’s Julian Fellowes and starring Emily Blunt as the fresh-faced queen.
