Jenna Coleman returns as Queen Victoria in the third season (eight episodes) of “Victoria.” Continuing the story of Victoria’s rule, season three introduces new historical characters, including Laurence Fox (“Inspector Lewis”) as the vainglorious Lord Palmerston, who crosses swords with the queen over British foreign policy. Also vexing the queen this season is Kate Fleetwood (“Harlots”) as Victoria’s devoted but troubled half-sister, Princess Feodora, who seeks refuge at Buckingham Palace due to political unrest back home in Germany.
