A biographical comedy-drama based on the real-life relationship between Queen Victoria and her Indian Muslim servant Abdul Karim.
Young clerk, Abdul travels to England to participate in Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 and is surprised to find favour with the queen. Victoria develops an interest in and later a friendship with Abdul. She promotes him to become her Munshi and asks him to teach her Urdu and the Qur'an.
However, his preferential treatment is resented by her household and inner circle, not least her son Bertie and the Prime Minister. The household plots to try and undermine their relationship. But Victoria stands her ground as she begins to see a changing world from a fresh perspective.
