A Right Royal Scandal

Prince Frederick, Duke of York was the second son of George III and brother to the Prince Regent and was an important figure in London society.

Although happily married, he had many mistresses while his wife lived out of town. One, Mary Anne Clarke, was a favourite, but after a while the relationship soured and she wanted retribution. Events led to the biggest scandal of the age and was the talk of the town.
