An English mistress. A foreign queen. A difficult balance. Roles chosen by their King, but women who won’t be defined by them.
It’s 1734 and you’re invited to an exclusive party at Kensington Palace to celebrate King George II’s birthday. Underneath the seemingly joyful occasion is an undercurrent of tension between Queen Caroline and her husband’s mistress, Henrietta Howard, who is desperate to leave and start a new life.
Delving into the world of political intrigue, court games, high drama, scandalous gossip and smiling through gritted teeth, this immersive experience presents two separate journeys highlighting the stories of these brilliant women who might have otherwise been lost in the shadow of their king.

The experience aims to throw audiences into a world of political intrigue, court games, high drama, scandalous gossip as they embark on one of two routes to highlight the story of Queen Caroline and Henrietta Howard.
