Philip is up early and exercising. He mucks up his neck and needs to see a specialist for her. They talk about all sorts of things and eventually the doctor invites him to a party.
A year lady there is a woman being asked about several Soviets. She isn’t saying anything. They want to know about the party. There is a man with his back to the camera. They want an ID but she doesn’t give one.
Macmillian talks about it. Government types think it is a foreign minister that Macmillian thinks the minister in question is innocent. Margaret is doing construction. Elizabeth has to mediate. Her doctor comes in. Good news, she’s expecting though her iron levels are low.
She goes to tell Philip but he’s not there. Turns out he’s at a weekend house party, even if it is only Wednesday. The doctor, Ward, is brought in by police. He admits that he introduced the foreign minister to a call girl and a Russian spy. He’ll be resigning shortly.
Tony has been handling a lot of foreign assignments. It’s good for the marriage. Elizabeth goes to see Margaret about the construction noise. She finds out that Margaret is pregnant too. They talk about the latest news.
Apparently the minister admitted to an affair but he’s not the mystery man in the photo. Margaret thinks it is Philip. Elizabeth meets with Macmillian who tries to resign. She refuses to accept it. She will be taking leave to Scotland because of the pregnancy.
There is a theater production poking fun at the queen and the government. Macmillian’s wife found it funny and tells him to see it. Elizabeth is excited to see Philip packing. She thinks that he is going with her. He’s not. She takes a jab but they still part ways.
Macmillian goes to see the show and gets called out. Elizabeth takes the train to Scotland. Ward is on trial. Elizabeth is asleep when Michael comes in. He needs her for a few things. Run of the mill charitable paperwork but there is something else.
Ward took his own life and the investigation into his estate revealed a link to Philip. Elizabeth is not happy about it. Then she gets news that Macmillian is resigning. She goes to see him but she can’t talk him out of it.
Philip gets back to Buckingham and finds Margaret and Tony but no Elizabeth. She appointed a new PM and then ran back to Scotland and her selection isn’t going over well. Philip takes the train to see her but she would prefer to be alone.
The next day they fight. He says that he knows she is under a lot of stress but some people are there for her. She doesn’t think he is. They fight about Ward and the truth. She would rather the truth even if it hurts but he is a mystery man. He says that he’s hers. She has the baby, Prince Edward. Margaret has hers. They sit for a family portrait.
Elizabeth is trapped and Philip is awful. That’s basically the moral of the story right? None of them are happy. They probably don’t even like each other. They are stuck.
