Abdul Karim, a young clerk from Agra is instructed to travel to England for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 to present her with a mohur, a special gold coin. The Queen, who is lonely and tired of her fawning courtiers, develops an interest in and later a friendship with Abdul. She spends time with him alone, and promotes him to become her Munshi, a teacher.
