Principios del siglo XVIII. Inglaterra está en guerra contra Francia. Una reina debilitada, Anne, ocupa el trono, mientras que su amiga Lady Sarah gobierna en la práctica el país en su lugar, debido al precario estado de salud y al carácter inestable de la monarca. Cuando una nueva sirvienta, Abigail, aparece en palacio, su encanto seduce a Sarah. Esta ayuda a Abigail, la cual ve una oportunidad para regresar a sus raíces aristocráticas. Como la política ocupa gran parte del tiempo de Sarah, Abigail empieza a acompañar con más frecuencia a la reina.
