    Heavy Is the Head: Prince Charles’s Rocky Ascent

    Heavy Is the Head: Prince Charles’s Rocky Ascent

    No one has ever waited longer to become monarch than Prince Charles. But who is Prince Charles, and how has his life in the shadows of nearly everyone close to him—his mother, his ex-wife, his sons—impacted who he is today? What can we even expect from King Charles? To understand these questions is to understand the man who has seemingly always played second fiddle in the Windsor P.R. machine. We’ll examine the ways in which Charles has reinvented his image and speculate on what his role and power within the firm mean for the future of the monarchy.

    The Firm’s Footsoldiers: Who Really Controls the Crown?

    The Firm’s Footsoldiers: Who Really Controls the Crown?

    The British royal family is sometimes referred to as “The Firm” – the time-honored, drama-tested machinery that refines, defines and helps control the family’s public image. The inner forces are shadowy—perhaps that’s what led King George VI to coin the phrase in the first place even to the family’s highest-profile members. So how exactly does The Firm work, and who is in it?

    Clash of the Titans: The Global Press vs. the Royals

    When it comes to the Windsors and the press, who really holds the power? From Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson’s earth-shattering scandal to revealing TV confessions from Diana and, later, Prince Andrew, why has the royal family always been so afraid of, and prone to, scandal? We’ll investigate the ongoing tug-of-war between Fleet Street and its fetishized family, and how that has played out for the royals who dare try to reset the balance.

    “The Only Job Which Matters”: Motherhood Inside the Monarchy

    Motherhood is far from simple, but motherhood within the context and confines of a monarchy comes with its own set of challenges. From the queen to Princess Diana to the Duchess of Sussex, royal mothers have had to balance their maternal instincts with centuries of tradition. This episode explores the disparate ways Meghan, Kate, and the generations before them have entered into and engaged with motherhood—and how the modern royals have begun to change the narrative.
