A Royal Affair: pictures

Jane Austen's Regency World No 58The stunning new film A Royal Affair features on the cover of the latest edition of Jane Austen’s Regency World – and is in British cinemas now

Set in 1770s Denmark, it tells the true story of a series of events that rocked the Danish monarchy: King Christian, married to a British Princess, was mentally ill. He befriended Johann Struensee, a small-town German doctor with a reputation as a man of the Enlightenment. Struensee and the Princess worked closely to bring the ideals of Rousseau to the Danish Court … but eventually became too close, with tragic consequences.

The Editor saw this film last week (it’s in Danish, with English subtitles) and thoroughly recommends it. You can read an interview with Nikolaj Arcel, the director, in the latest issue of Jane Austen’s Regency World magazine. Below are some images from the film, which stars Mads Mikkelsen (from Casino Royale).
