Fergie wants to continue Victoria's reign Date July 9, 2013 (CANBERRA TIMES)
Former British royal Sarah Ferguson hopes to persuade Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes to sign on to pen the script for a sequel to The Young Victoria.
The Duchess of York, who was previously married to Prince Andrew, served as co-producer on the 2009 Oscar-winning film, which also featured her daughter Princess Beatrice as an extra, and hopes to re-create its success with a follow-up.
Fellowes was behind the script to The Young Victoria, which chronicles the life of Britain's Queen Victoria and her romance with Prince Albert, and Ferguson wants to re-team with the writer for the new project.
