The Crown’s (Netflix) historical consultant: Britain’s attitude to the royal family needs a health warning! (E960)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the historical consultant for Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ and author of ‘Battle of Brothers: William, Harry and the Inside Story of a Family in Tumult’, Robert Lacey. He discusses the lack of openness from the royal family in modern times and the reasons for it, his opinions on the latest season of ‘The Crown’ and the reaction from the government about it, saying it needs a fiction notice, the British attitude to the royal family and how it has come to be treated as a religion in the UK, militarism within the royal family, the death of Princess Diana which was surrounded by scandal, conflict in the royal family and tragedy for Prince William and Harry, and how the death of their mother shaped them growing up and much more!
