The final talk of the series will begin with the long reign of Queen Victoria, who gave her name to one of the most self-confident ages in British history. She presided over “the empire on which the sun never sets”, and her kingdom led the world in trade and industry. Victoria’s Windsor successors weathered the storms of two world wars, but affairs of the heart posed an arguably greater threat to their crown. The abdication of Edward VIII so that he could marry the American divorcee Wallis Simpson was mirrored in more recent times by the controversy surrounding Elizabeth II’s grandson, Prince Harry. Bringing us right up to date, the talk will conclude by considering what lessons Britain’s future monarchs can draw from the past 1,000 years.
The lecture will run for 45 minutes followed by 30 minute Q&A.
All attendees will receive a study pack to accompany each lecture, containing an original document picked by Tracy to discuss with her in the Q&A, a bespoke feature, detailed timeline and quiz.
