In the early 18th century, England is at war with France; nevertheless, duck-racing and pineapple-eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. Mud-covered former aristocrat Abigail Hill arrives at the palace with nothing, to beg for a job. However, with an ailing Queen Anne mostly tending to her furry herd of rabbits and the petulant monarch's faithful confidante, Sarah Churchill, subtly running the country, it won't be long before the castle's newest scullery maid spots a golden opportunity to restore her status. What will it take to become Queen Anne's favourite?
