Royal historian and author Robert Lacey is one of the experts featured in the ABC-TV two-night television event “The Story of the Royals,” debuting on August 22, 2018.
“The Story of the Royals’ will explore pivotal moments in the crown’s history beginning with a simple question: How exactly did we get here? The multipart series captures the mystique of the monarchy through its many loves, losses, extravagances, challenges and charms. With Prince William and Kate’s new royal baby and Prince Harry’s recent marriage to Meghan Markle, the Windsors have truly begun to modernise and resemble a 21st-century family. ‘The Story of the Royals’ will illustrate that evolution as well as examine the American obsession behind all things royal.”
