Prince Albert is a character in Blackadder's Christmas Carol portrayed by Jim Broadbent.


Prince Albert visits Ebenezer Blackadder with his wife Queen Victoria with the goal of rewarding Blackadder as the kindest man in his local area, and test him by asking him for his Christmas turkey, the last thing he has to celebrate Christmas. Upon hearing Albert's accent, he asks him about it, and Albert claims to be from Scotland. Blackadder responds by saying "I love the Gorbals," which confuses Albert, who assumes the Gorbals to be a family living in Scotland, and responds accordingly. The turn up after Blackadder's epiphany, bearing a hefty reward for his former kindness, including £50,000 and the title of "Baron Blackadder." However, Blackadder does not recognise them and insults them, before turning his insults to the Queen and Prince, unaware he is insulting them further. Enraged by his insults, Victoria and Albert leave, vowing never to return.
