Storyline

Lillie is pregnant and flat out broke. She sells her possessions and moves back to Jersey and the Prince of Wales arranges for a loan of £2000. She goes to Paris where she gives birth to a baby girl, but she tells everyone she's taken in her niece. Bertie decides not to tell Prince Louis of the birth. Edward Langtry is in poor condition, drunk most of the time and resists giving Lillie a divorce. She decides to pursue a career on the stage and her first performance is a success. Her second performance, at the Haymarket Theater in the West End is a resounding success. She then plans a tour in the United States. Written by garykmcd
