Faced with family dramas, political crises and questions about the future of the monarchy in Britain and elsewhere, the new King had no shortage of challenges. During this talk, Robert Hardman will discuss story of transition at the very top – and of a sovereign resolute in making his mark.
With his unrivalled access to the Royal Family, their close friends, staff past and present plus previously unseen papers in the Royal Archives, Hardman – who is also the writer and co-producer of the BBC documentary, Charles III: The Coronation Year – reveals Charles the man as well as the monarch.
Robert Hardman also describes the vital role played by Queen Camilla, the King’s relationships with Prince William and Prince Harry, his plans for reforming the monarchy and his evolving place on the world stage. From the emotional days following the death of Elizabeth II to the first coronation in seventy years – radically different from all before it – and the stealthy but steady pace of change ever since, Hardman has been there to witness it all.
Authoritative and richly insightful, Charles III is a fascinating account of a king determined to maximise ‘the time God grants me’ – and even enjoy it.
