A treat for royal watchers

2009-08-17 00:00

ROYAL watchers are in for a treat this month when BBC Knowledge broadcasts a series of programmes about Britain’s royal family.

Kicking things off is Monarchy: The Royal Family At Work, a six-part series that starts today with a double bill at 8.30 pm and then continues every weekday at 8.30 pm on channel 251 on DStv.

The show provides a fascinating insight into the life and work of the queen and the royal family over the course of a year.

At 9.30 pm tomorrow, viewers can see Charles At 60: The Passionate Prince. Filmed over the course of a year, the programme follows Prince Charles at work in the UK and abroad and at home at Clarence House in London, Highgrove in Gloucestershire, and Birkhall in Aberdeenshire.

The film gives viewers the chance to see what motivates the future king to work on the variety of causes to which he is committed.

At 9.30 pm on Wednesday, you can watch Prince William And Harry: Into The Future, a programme that explores the world of the young royals and their circle of friends; examines their royal romances and asks whether these will endure the intense gaze of the media and the world’s press.

Last, but not least is Diana: Last Days Of A Princess on Wednesday at 10.30 pm. The film reveals the key moments leading up to the deaths of Diana and her lover, Dodi al-Fayed, son of international business tycoon Mohammed al-Fayed, 10 years after the fatal 1997 crash.
