David Oakes as Prince Ernest

Prince Albert attracts attention until the very moment his younger brother appears on the screen. The incredible charisma of David Oakes can even be felt through the screen!


This English actor has an impressive record of playing aristocratic roles in the series "The Pillars of the Earth," "The Borgias," "The White Queen," and "Victoria."

Despite portraying roles with darker aspects to them, David has a different side in his real life. He has romanced numerous women on screen, but when it comes to his real-world life, he is happy in love.

David is dating Natalie Dormer, who starred in "Tudors," "Game of Thrones," and "Hunger Games." In May 2020, the lovebirds were pictured while out on a romantic stroll.

Rufus Sewell as Lord Melbourne


We all remember that queen Victoria's first love was not prince Albert, but Lord Melbourne. Lord Melbourne's private life was full of drama, and Sewell's real-life romances were not far behind.

He has been married twice, but also he was dating many Hollywood stars. One of his most promising romances was with Kate Winslet in 1995-1996. Also, there was a rumor about the actor dating Helena Bonham Carter!

His first wife was his long-term girlfriend, charming Australian fashion journalist Yasmin Abdallah in 1999, but the couple got divorced the following year.


Then Rufus fell in love with the producer Amy Gardner. The couple welcomed a baby boy named Billy in 2002. And after about 2 years of parenting, the couple decided to get married. However, they got divorced in 2006.

During the last few years, Rufus Sewell has been dating his long-time Japanese-American secret girlfriend, Ami Komai.

Nell Hudson as Nancy Skerrett

Before appearing as the queen's close servant, Nell Hudson was known for her role as Laoghaire MacKenzie in "Outlander."

The gorgeous Nell was in a relationship with her longtime boyfriend Will Taylor, the lead singer of the band Flyte. They met when the band was performing at The Jericho Tavern back in 2011 in Oxford.

Ferdinand Kingsley as Mr. Francatelli

The love story between Mr. Francatelli and Nancy Skerrett is so cute. But what about the actor's actual love stories?

In fact, Ferdinand Kingsley is not French. In real life, he is a Brit. Besides that, he is the son of the actor Ben Kingsley who we know from the movies "Gandhi," "Schindler's List," "House of Sand," and "Fog."

Happy Christmas, all. Here is my dog, Gilbert, sleep-barking into my armpit. He’s five months old and pure goodness. If you need him to cheer you up just let me know. (cc @darth) pic.twitter.com/OxxsyyiGFu

However, Ferdinand Kingsley is very secretive about his love life, and if he's currently dating, the actor is keeping it under wraps.

Jenna Coleman as Queen Victoria

A teeny tiny brunette with huge blue eyes and an iron personality. That's how we all imagine queen Victoria now, thanks to the actress Jenna Coleman. But who is her real-life Prince Albert?

A few years ago, when Coleman was portraying the companion of Doctor Who, she dated the actor Richard Madden who we all remember as Robb Stark from Game of Thrones. Their relationship lasted for about 4 years but suddenly ended in 2015.
