Philip begins spending more and more time out of the house, while Elizabeth begins to spend more and more time with her old friend Porchey, a horse manager and old friend of the Royal Family who many had expected and even arranged for Elizabeth to marry. As tension arises, including Elizabeth having a direct line put in for Porchey to call Buckingham Palace, the two have an angry confrontation, which leads to Elizabeth telling Philip afterwards that, despite the fact a marriage with Porchey was more desired and perhaps would have even worked out better, the only person she had ever loved in her entire life was Philip. Following a moving speech at a dinner at Downing Street for Churchill's 80th birthday, Philip silently apologises to Elizabeth, but the tension continues. Graham Sutherland (Stephen Dillane) paints Churchill's portrait for his 80th birthday.
