Over those decades, the members of the Windsor dynasty have celebrated weddings and births as they navigated scandals, family rifts and heartbreaking tragedy — all in full view of a watchful public.
Now, with rare archival footage and insider interviews, CNN Original Series “The Windsors: Inside the Royal Dynasty” tells the true story behind the fairy tale.
Here’s what to know:
When can I watch it?
New episodes air on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT starting February 16. You can also stream live via CNNgo.
How much history will this cover?
The six-part series digs deep into the royal family’s past as it follows the dynasty all the way up to the present.
The episodes cover everything from King Edward VIII’s abdication; to Queen Elizabeth II’s rise as a young sovereign; to the marriage and divorce of Prince Charles and Diana; to the status of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex today.
Much of this is told through rarely seen footage, so if you live for royal weddings and coronations keep an eye out for those in practically every episode.
Who’s in it?
Descendents of key figures — like India Hicks, the granddaughter of Lord Louis Mountbatten, and Sir Nicholas Soames, the grandson of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill — give personal insight into the royal family’s story alongside expert commentators such as Kate Williams, Sally Bedell Smith, Piers Brendon, Jane Ridley, Wesley Kerr and Anne Sebba.
Where can I catch up on episodes?
Each week’s new episode will be available on demand the day following its premiere.
