The Royal House of Windsor (2017)

5 Royal Kernels

Now streaming on Netflix and more recently aired on PBS, is The Royal House of Windsor, a six-part documentary about the royal family. I have to say that this is one of the best tell-alls that I have viewed. The episodes are:

  • Adapt of Die
  • Love & Duty
  • Enter the Outsider
  • Shadow of a King
  • Fire, Feud, and Fury
  • The Top Job

It isn’t a tabloid-type look into the family, but rather a good historical accounting of facts. Starting with the Royal Family during WWI, it goes through WWII era, Prince Philip’s struggles, Charles and Diana, the turbulent marriage and divorce, and the children, and Prince Charles’ imprint on the monarchy and his views. Its insights into their personal lives, such as their upbringing and values, add to the intrigue of the series. It’s an eclectic group of individuals from traditionalists to liberals, making their way through love and duty.

If you’re into the English royal family, I high recommend this informative and well-done show that will give you a deeper understanding of what makes its various members tick. Long live the Queen.
