* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Duchess of Kent. Is she just a pawn of Sir John's scheming, and has she let her desire for power forget her love for her daughter? Or was her softening towards the end less a HeelRealization and a moment of pragmatism - trying to get on the Queen's good side? Notably the letters she sends Victoria during their estrangement could be read as sincere, or emotional blackmail.



* CatharsisFactor: The King's ReasonYouSuckSpeech in public to the Duchess of Kent is magnificent, after she's spent her screentime being a pompous, silly and manipulative piece of work. Bonus points for it actually happening too.
* ClicheStorm: Deliberately averted, according to WordOfGod. Early ideas included ending the film with Albert's death, but Julian Fellowes wanted to avoid such a cliche of biopics.



* HilariousInHindsight: Jim Broadbent has now played Queen Victoria's uncle and [[BlackadderSS2BlackaddersChristmasCarol husband]].

* CastingGag: Jim Broadbent AwardSnub: Many was surprised that Emily Blunt did not get an Oscar nomination. As a highly respected actress who has now played Queen Victoria's uncle and [[BlackadderSS2BlackaddersChristmasCarol husband]].never conformed to traditional OscarBait, many felt the Academy would recognise her for this one.



* TheLostLenore: Victoria's father, the late Duke of Kent, could be a male example of this. She's obviously upset that she never got to spend time with him before he died.
