Exclusive clip from period drama A Royal Affair: watch now

Sumptuous Danish drama A Royal Affair hits UK cinemas in less than a month, and we’ve gotten our hands on an exclusive clip from the film.

Alicia Vikander stars as Caroline Mathilde, a young Brit who’s sent to Denmark to marry King Christian VII (Mikkel Følsgaard). After they’re wed, though, she falls for his trusted advisor Johann (Mads Mikkelsen).

In our exclusive clip, Caroline’s fears about her new husband – who she’s never met – are put to rest when she’s let in on a little secret. Watch below...
