A Monarchy Of Misfits: Dr David Starkey
The marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when the second son of the Prince of Wales married a divorced American actress of mixed race and uncertain religion, was seen as a fundamental modernisation of the British monarchy.
Historian and presenter David Starkey (Radio 4’s Moral Maze, Question Time) traces the radically shifting marriage customs of the British monarchy, from the laxity of the Middle Ages, through the stringencies of the Hanoverians, to the house of Windsor and its sometimes contorted adaptations to the realities of modern family life.
Celebrated and controversial historian, social commentator and creator and presenter of TV programmes such as Channel 4's Monarchy, The Six Wives of Henry VIII and The Churchills.
David Starkey is a regular debater on BBC Radio 4's Moral Maze and a controversial contributor to BBC1's Question Time.
