Serving the Royals, this week’s pick from Jessica Fellowes, journalist, novelist and author of several Downton Abbey companion books, offers an exclusive insight into the men and women who served the Royal Family.
From footmen and butlers to bodyguards, nannies and private secretaries this film tells the stories of the British Royal Family’s long-suffering servants. Round the clock they toil, often thanklessly, to keep the monarchy humming. While they are sworn to secrecy some have betrayed their masters for cash and have suffered the consequences.
This revealing documentary in turn shines a light on the scandals that shook the Royal Household from the perspective of those downstairs. Watch the full documentary here.
