This is the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s remarkable rule. When Abdul, a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen's Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle regard with jealousy. As the friendship deepens, the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes and joyfully reclaims her humanity.
