With so many great documentaries on True Royalty TV, we thought we’d take the pain out of choosing and pick five goodies for you. From new releases to True Royalty exclusives to existing classics, here is what to watch this weekend.
As England’s heir apparent gets ever closer to the throne, this documentary turns the spotlight on the future King’s relationship with his future Queen. What began as a controversial love affair predating Charles’ marriage to Diana has stood the test of time to become a rock solid union at the heart of the Royal Family. But has the British public overcome its initial resistance to the woman who seems increasingly likely to become Queen? Find out here.
In this exclusive look at the most dynamic couple of the Royal Family, True Royalty explores the lives of newlyweds Meghan and Harry in the first hundred days since they got married in May. We get the inside scoop from our palace sources, speak to historians about the couple’s potential modernising influence on the Royals, and talk to leading figures from fashion and show business about the happy couple’s private and public lives. Find out what the future has in store for the golden couple here.
We discuss the touchy subject of what happens when a Royal marriage ends up on the rocks, in an exclusive and original talk show produced by True Royalty. With expert insight from the likes of Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell and former tabloid newspaper editor Neil Wallis, we get the lowdown on everything from the Royal crisis precipitated by Charles and Diana’s divorce, to the good-time, headline grabbing antics of Princess Margaret. Watch the fiery debate here.
When you’re a Royal, your fashion choices make a statement. We turn our lens on the style choices of the newest (adult) member of the Royal family, examining the significance of her wedding dress right through to her day-to-day designer outfits. What do Meghan’s clothes tell us about the kind of Royal she will be, and how she will shape the role of a modern Princess? Step inside the Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe here.
Few relationships in the history of the British Royal Family have rocked the institution in the same way as Edward VIII and his marriage to two-time American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Forced to choose between love and duty, the short-lived King followed his heart and brought about a constitutional crisis that shook the Royals to their very core. Dive into the most dramatic romance in Royal history here.
