The Museum of the Royal Navy was closed to the public on Tuesday, but is set to be open as normal today.

Speaking to the Mail, Roslyn Adamson said: "We are proud of the museum’s historic attractions and assets, and are often approached for them to be featured on various media platforms, including film and television.

“Film and television tourism is another effective means of boosting revenue by attracting more visitors to the museum site, so we always try, where possible, to seek out relevant opportunities and accommodate these kind of requests."

Series three of Victoria will be an eight-part drama, starting in 1848. ITV have not yet confirmed a start date.
