Over the last century and a half, the camera has been the royal family’s confidante, messenger, keeper of memories – and pursuer. Lucy Worsley seeks to explore this complicated relationship, uncovering the stories behind some of the most famous photographs of the British royal family.
(uplifting piano music)
- A photograph has a meaning
that goes deep beneath the surface,
and nobody knows this better
than the royal family themselves.
I'm going to open up the royal photo album,
and you'll tell me the story of this picture here.
From creating a new sovereign to affairs of the heart
of here behind the scenes stories
from these unforgettable images.
It's a glimpse of life in the royal family as never before.
