Princess Margaret: A Love Story documentary 2017

Her Majesty The Queen
A documentary that looks back to the furore caused by Princess Margaret's affair with Peter Townsend, a divorced commoner. Billed as a constitutional crisis, Margaret's dilemma was the first modern royal scandal which would shape the future of royal relations with the media. In 1955 she chose to sacrifice love for duty by ending the affair, but new evidence presented here suggests that hers was a needless sacrifice. Tags: Margaret, Princess, Princess Margaret
Are you sure you couldn’t just bung us another series of The Windsors?

Her Majesty The Queen
The Royal House of Windsor review – we really don’t need another history lesson Enough of the documentaries, Channel 4 – instead, give us more comedies caricaturing the royals. Plus: some medical miracles Oh, how I got my hopes up. I mistook the title of last night’s The Royal House of Windsor (Channel 4) for a new series of The Windsors, last year’s superbly daft sitcom about the royals that caricatures them all exactly as you would expect them to be – the memory of Prince Harry calling his sister in law “Puppah” still makes me laugh my leg off. Instead we got another of those documentaries about the nation’s favourite ermine-sporters, of which the once-radical Channel 4 seems so inexplicably fond. Every year it appears to commission about 80 hours of historians once again

Would it be too much to ask that Queen Elizabeth outspoken eldest son should at last follow her example and wisely keep his own counsel?

Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Charles
We've tolerated his outspoken views for years, but as he nears the throne Charles is pontificating on such explosive political subjects that I tremble for the Monarchy's future, says STEPHEN GLOVER For many years, Prince Charles has unburdened himself of his views on architecture, homeopathy, organic farming, climate change and a dozen other subjects that engage his lively and fertile mind. The heir to the throne has famously pestered government ministers with his ‘black spider memos’ — so described because of the spidery, hand-written notes which he attaches to these typed letters — exhorting them to action on mostly minor matters. His public interventions can be infuriating, or somewhat cheering. Indeed, it is possible at times to find oneself in complete agreement with him, but at ot

A New Exhibition Examines the Lives of Three Forgotten British Princesses

Her Majesty The Queen
Today a new exhibition examining the lives of three somewhat forgotten princesses opens at the Yale Center for British Art. “Enlightened Princesses: Caroline, Augusta, Charlotte, and the Shaping of the Modern World” focuses on three women who married into the British royal family during the 18th century. Each wed a crown prince of Great Britain, although only Caroline and Charlotte went on to become queens. More important, the princesses had a profound effect on the intellectual interests of the court and, by extension, the wider world, during their respective heydays. Their promotion of the arts, sciences, and philanthropy helped shaped the roles of future British royal women as well. The artworks included in the show, which come from nearly 50 collections, range from an original Wed
