She accepts and telephones Charles but hangs up when his phone is answered by a female voice. Looking out on Windsor Castle, she sees herself as the young Queen Victoria and Albert as Prince Albert.

Charles arrives to tell her that all arrangements are made for her to leave with him and the company for Burma, but she refuses saying she will never marry an actor. Barmaid Kate (Kathleen Harrison) tells Charles why Carole feels the way she does about actors: Carole's mother, Lillian Grey (Anna Neagle), was with a touring show in 1913 when the handsome star, John Beaumont (Errol Flynn) raised her from the chorus to be his partner in his first West End show. They were a success, fell in love and were married. But the war soon took Beau off to Flanders and Lillian was left to become a great star on her own.
