'The Royal Beat' reviews the year's biggest Royal stories in a special edition for True Royalty TV.
With series four of The Crown launching on November 15th, the Netflix drama is now primed to introduce one of the most emotionally charged, dynamic and tragic figures to have ever been a member of the British Royal Family.
We are proud to present our latest original documentary, tracing the history of King Juan Carlos I of Spain's tumultuous rise to power and his scandalous fall from grace. Premiering on October 23, this True Royalty original features the first-ever on-camera interview with the King’s former mistress Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, who accuses the Spanish Royal Family of being responsible for a pre-planned smear campaign amounting to “intrusion, surveillance, harassment and abusive behaviour”.
The British Royal Family is one of the world’s oldest monarchies, steeped in hundreds of years of closely-guarded tradition, bloodlines and – during some periods – bloodshed.
But the British monarchy is distinctly unusual in having thrived during the 20th and 21st centuries – when so many others have fallen by the wayside – to become one of the most respected and celebrated families in the world. The British Royals quite literally and deliberately reinvented themselves to remain relevant.
True Royalty has launched its first original Meghan and Harry: The First 100 Days – a fascinating window into the extraordinary world of the Royal Family’s most dynamic couple as they embark on their new life together.
Few public figures have been subject to more speculation about their private life than the Queen, but we believe it’s possible to get a strong sense of her personality without having to seek out scandal or hearsay – as these ten carefully-curated facts will attest.
If every girl dreams at one time of being a princess, then it must be true that a few of those dreamers have walked down the aisle of an English cathedral pinching themselves. True Royalty TV’s Meghan and Harry: The First 100 Days showed how the public is now being given two versions of princesshood: the Meghan and the Catherine, the dynamic partner in public life or supportive queen-in-waiting.
It’s been quite a year for Prince Harry and with his 34th birthday we thought we’d celebrate his life at True Royalty with a curated collection of the best and most insightful documentaries about the charismatic prince. Here are five of our favourites.
While Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch in British history with an incredible 66 years at the helm, let us not forget that Queen Victoria held the record previously at 63 years, seven months and two days. In fact, today, 23rd September, marks the anniversary of the day Victoria beat George III’s record of 59 years and 96 days.
