A Century of the Queen Mother: 100 Years in 100 Minutes

For a century, The Queen Mother dazzled a nation and the world. Presented by Valerie Singleton, this remarkable portrait digs beneath the surface to present, for the first time, a balanced but vivid portrait of this exceptional royal. It traces many aspects of her life, including her love for her husband and daughters, her support for the institution of monarchy, her reaction to the abdication crisis, her animosity towards Mrs Simpson and Princess Diana, her close bond with Prince Charles, and her extravagant lifestyle and love of racing, gardens and fashion.
