Paxman on the Queen’s Children

Channel 5

FORMAT: 2 x 60′

Jeremy Paxman is a monarchist. He’s glad the country has a royal figurehead, someone separate from the world of politics. But in this two-part series, he asks: What does it mean that we have a ‘royal family’, too? Meeting eyewitnesses and players in the royal soap opera, Paxman explores the lives of the Queen’s four children – Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward – and discovers how their disasters and triumphs have shaped our relationship with the monarchy. Incisive, irreverent, yet empathetic, Paxman reveals why this generation of royals grew up in the spotlight, and what it’s mean for them – and for the Crown.
