King George: There is no better. There is no cure. This is who I am. I will be here sometimes. And sometimes I will be... You can leave me. I would understand, and I would let you go.
Queen Charlotte: George. I will not leave you.
King George: You should.
Queen Charlotte: I will not.
King George: You have half a husband, Charlotte. Half a life. I cannot give you the future that you deserve. Not a full me. Not a full marriage. Only half. Half a man. Half a king. Half a life.
Queen Charlotte: If what we have is half, then we shall make it the very best half. I love you. It is enough. I am your queen. And as long as I am so, I shall never leave your side. You are king. You will be king. Your children will rule. Together, we are whole.
Princess Augusta (to Lady Danbury): Over the years, I learnt I need not be content to surrender to the uselessness of female pursuits. Instead, I secured my son as King. I found a way to control my own fate. I do not like you. However, you have been... an admirable adversary thus far. Our battles bring me satisfaction. So this... will not do. You are not allowed to come here and sob. You may not quit. Cover your bruises and endure. Do not lose control of your fate, Agatha.
Brimsley (about King George): Will it last? And will he stay as he is? Well?
Reynolds: One can hope.
Brimsley: Reynolds, if it lasts, they would have one another. Yeah, they will be together, have a marriage, grow old as one. We would serve them together.
Reynolds: A lifetime.
Brimsley: Yeah. A lifetime.
Reynolds: It is possible.
Brimsley: But truly possible?
Reynolds: I do not know. Perhaps. Great love can make miracles.
Prince George: You do not know us. Any of us. You do not learn about us. You do not care for what we care for. Our happiness is not your goal.
Queen Charlotte: Nonsense. I want what is best for you. As your mother...
Prince George: You have never been a mother.
Queen Charlotte: I have done all I could for you. If you understood the sacrifices, how hard I have worked to make sure you each... I have been an excellent mother.
Prince George: No. You have been our queen, but you have never really been our mother.
King George: I am a madman. I am a danger. In my mind, there are different worlds creeping in. The heavens and Earth collide. I do not know where I am.
Queen Charlotte: Do you love me?
King George: You do not wish a life with me for yourself. No one wishes that.
Queen Charlotte: George! I will stand with you between the heavens and the Earth. I will tell you where you are. Do you love me?
King George: I love you! From the mo... From the moment I saw you trying to go over the wall... I have loved you desperately. I cannot breathe when you are not near. I love you, Charlotte. My heart calls your name.
Lady Danbury (to her son): You are Lord Danbury. And you will take your rightful place because you are entitled to it. And because you are my son. You are the son of Agatha Danbury, born name Soma, Royal Blood of the Kpa-Mende Bo tribe in Sierra Leone. You come from warriors. We win. Never forget that.
Lady Danbury (to Violet): What do we know of one another? Really know beyond pedigrees and widowhood? What do any of the women of the ton know of true friendship? It is all social chatter, marital schemes, and gossip. You opened yourself up to show me who you are. That was brave. We mothers and aunts and leaders of the ton, we spend our time endlessly matchmaking, talking of wooing. Of love. Of romance. But never for anyone mature enough to truly understand what any of it means. What it is to go without it. What it is to lose it. We are full of gossip and story, but as women, we are never the topics of the conversation. Lady Whistledown never writes of our hearts. We are untold stories. Yesterday, you told me something of your story. And I... thank you.
Adolphus: Inside you ripens the fruit of England, and until that fruit is ripe, your body is but a... a tree, a tree in the orchard of the Crown, and at such time as it...
Queen Charlotte: I am a tree?
Adolphus: I... I mean to say only that the child inside you is not yours.
Queen Charlotte: My body is growing it.
Adolphus: What matter?
Queen Charlotte: What matter? Well, you try growing it.
Adolphus: Your body is not your own. To leave the kingdom now would be treason. King-napping.
Queen Charlotte: We need to discuss the flowers for the wedding.
Prince William: That will not be necessary, Mother, as there'll not be a wedding.
Prince Edward: You forgot something the other day.
Prince William: Our eldest brother, George, the Prince of Wales.
Prince Edward: Prince Regent of England. The man in charge since father's incapacity.
Prince William: The man, according to the Royal Marriages Act of Parliament, with the sole authority to approve any marriage within the royal house. Including ours.
Prince Edward: Only he hasn't approved them. And he will not. He is quite offended, see, that you did not consult him first.
Queen Charlotte: You are right.
Prince William: We are?
Queen Charlotte: I forgot myself. I overstepped. As Prince Regent, the matter rests entirely in the Prince of Wales's hands. He is acting sovereign and ultimate authority.
Prince Edward: Quite right.
Queen Charlotte: Now, Georgie, be a good boy and approve your brothers' marriages.
Prince George: I approve.
