The Queen Mother was one of the royal family's most famous members and helped stabilise the monarchy's popularity. She had seen off the Luftwaffe and Adolf Hitler. She represented not only a country and an empire, but a century of human history.
Everyone knows the story of Diana Spencer, the naive girl that became a Princess and almost became a queen. In this documentary we take a look at the story of the country girl before Buckingham Palace.
The tale of Princess Margaret's search for true love is one filled with heartbreak, tough decisions and scandal. An idyllic childhood, surrounded by her sister, mother and father, swiftly changed into an upbringing full of loneliness.
