The Royal Beat - Episode 18. Charles: Stepping Up
THE ROYAL BEAT • 33m
Prince Charles steps into the role of monarch at the State Opening of Parliament, as health issues force the Queen to pull out. We hear what this means for her attendance at the Jubilee celebrations, and discuss which royals have and have not made the guest list for the iconic Buckingham Palace balcony appearance.
Plus, Hugo Vickers, co-author of the Duke of Kent's new memoirs, discusses why one of the Queen's closest family members has taken the unprecedented step of writing a book.
As well as Hugo Vickers, this week Kate is joined in the studio by Daily Mirror Royal Editor, Russell Myers, and Majesty Magazine Editor in Chief, Ingrid Seward.
