If you are interested in all things Royal, then this virtual presentation is for you!
Dominic leads us through the history of the British Royal family. We begin a thousand years ago with the arrival of William the Conqueror and the Doomsday Book. On to Richard and the Crusades and John and the Magna Carta until we meet the Black Prince and endure 100 years of War with France.
We hear about Richard III and the tragic murder of the young Princes in the Tower and of King Henry VIII and his six wives.
Next is Elizabeth I or ‘The Fairy Queen’ - ruling at the time of Shakespeare and then Charles, who lost his head. Next we spend time with Queen Victoria, who ruled for 61 years and became Empress of India and then move on to George VI and ‘The King’s Speech’; Elizabeth II and ‘The Queen’.
We spend time of course on Charles and Diana (and Camilla), on William and Kate and on Harry and Meghan and discuss the popular series ‘The Crown.’
