There's a new documentary series on Channel 5 called "The Royals". The first episode, "Royal Babies" has just finished:

I just watched it and we didn't really learn anything new. It is true that Andrew and Edward had a much better childhood than Charles and Anne, and Diana definitely changed the way Royal mums raised their children. We knew all this though. Channel 5 are HUGE Monarchists though so they have a lot of royal shows.

Although I'm not British, I would enjoy seeing some of the royal shows across the pond!
I have seen some documentaries on Youtube about the Royal Family, and about Queen Victoria, Haemophilia in the RF, etc. What are you all's opinions of those?

Was watching the DVD of Bertie and Elizabeth tonight, and had a few questions- can you only watch the introduction with the host if you choose introduction from the scene selection, and what are DVD Rom features?

Google is your best bet. DVD-Rom features are usually subtitles or audio help.

"Queen Victoria and the Crippled Kaiser" Channel 4 Documentary 2013

Queen Victoria and the Crippled Kaiser: Channel 4 Documentary- Sunday, November 17th, 8pm UK Time-

Queen Victoria's grandson, the future Kaiser Wilhelm II, was born with a permanently paralysed arm: a disability considered shameful at the time.

His mother wrote that she was 'haunted' by the idea of him 'remaining a cripple' and insisted that he hide his paralysed arm throughout his life.

Cruel and crude attempts to 'cure' him poisoned their relationship and helped turn the boy, born to unite the Royal families of Britain and Germany, into the man who tore them apart.

Featuring a long-hidden cache of intimate family letters, this documentary reveals this secret story of child cruelty, secret shame and dark, incestuous desires, which begins behind palace doors and ends in the carnage of World War I.

Part of Secret History, which showcases the best in historical journalism.

Has anyone been watching the documentary last year cover on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, called Our Queen, directed by Michael Waldman? I have just seen the DVD is released and want to ask whether the documentary focuses on HM's life or specificly on the Diamond Jubilee intensively like the documentary the Royal Family at Work a few years ago.

Bertie and Elizabeth (2002)

I've been re-watching the aforementioned and only just realised that Prince George, Duke of Kent isn't even hinted at let alone mentioned.

I would have thought they might have briefly mentioned his reaction to Edward VIII's abdication (beyond angry) or even the Dukes death in the air crash when it was covering the war years but there was nothing which is surprising because I remember reading somewhere that the King was very upset by the death of his younger brother.

Same with the Princess Royal or the Duke of Gloucester...not a single mention that I can recall.

I know the story was focused on King George VI and Queen Elizabeth but I cannot work out why they would practically ignore half of the family.

Yeah, I noticed the King's other siblings weren't mentioned and the focus remained on Edward VIII. George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

I would like to see a film made about King George V and Queen Mary and their family.

The only documentary/films made about George and Mary I can think of are The Lost Prince by Stephen Poliakoff (predominantly about Prince John) and King George and Queen Marry: The Royals Who Rescued The Monarchy both made by the BBC.

I dont think there is a better documentary on lives/family of george V and mary than.."George V and Mary: Royals who rescued Monarchy".. But even in that there is hardly any focus on the "other children"..Its all David and Bertie..
See it happens anywhere..tell me which royal documentary on EII's reign/family focusses on Anne/Andrew/Edward..Same..they are all side-kicks.unless there is a spicy scandal/controversy/shady life no one is interested in them. If Margaret quietly married and lived a "normal" life she too would have passe off quietly..All the documentaries on her are just becuse of her "other than normal" life..

If you haven't already seen this documentary, I hope you get a chance to sit back and watch it now. This documentary not only tell you about the love story of the late King & Queen but it includes the most amazing and rarely seen photos and reels of Their Majesty's and the princesses Elizabeth & Margaret. Albert & Elizabeth really tried to present a real family unit to the British people and Empire. They took their young children with them to a great deal of official engagements and official tours. You could really see the closeness of the family and how they enjoyed going about their official duties as a family.

I hope we see a little of the King & Queen's influence in the Cambridge's when they come to the throne.

Documentary:
King George VI & Queen Elizabeth: A Royal Love Story-
Documentary about George VI and his wife Elizabeth, King and Queen consort of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions. The story of Albert (his name before he became King) and Elizabeth, is one of goodness growing into greatness. In a short reign, just 14 years, they created an ideal of the British Royal Family. This documentary examines the legacy they built, a legacy that lives on in the way that their eldest daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, rules today-
