In the early 21st century we exist in a relatively peaceful period in the history of the British monarchy. Weddings, anniversaries and a new baby have all contributed to a national mood of affection toward the Windsors.
Things weren’t ever thus.
Our London Walks Podcast this month deals with the Royal Family from a number of “recent” perspectives and periods, not all of them obedient and loyal; the controversial inter-war years, scandalous behaviour in the Victorian era, a royal fashion show and a couple of (respectful!) royal jokes thrown in.
Catch up with earlier episodes of The London Walks Podcast at londonwalks.podbean.com.
