The Queen is a South African telenovela that revolves around the Khoza family – drug lords who use their logistics company to hide their dealings. The multi-award-winning show is currently in its 6th season. Since its premiere, the writers of the soapie have ensured that each new episode doesn’t fall short of viewers’ expectations. Thus, the episodes released in April 2022 weren’t only interesting but had lots of drama and action.
Last month, we saw how Patronella and Schumacher’s relationship started dwindling due to intense arguments on how to run the restaurant. On the other hand, Harriet and Hector faced lots of obstacles in a bid to initiate a forever ending. Will the love birds succeed in salvaging their love for each other? Or will there be surprises that would cause a strain on their relationship? The Queen teasers for May 2022 offer the answers and more!
