On the eve of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, in the midst of all the joyful noise surrounding them, THE STORY OF THE ROYALS launches from a simple question: how exactly did we get here? How did an American, biracial, divorcee find herself at the threshold of the most powerful family in the world? How did an institution so rigidly built on ideas of hereditary succession come to welcome such a radically new identity to it's ranks? Jumping back to the early decades of the twentieth century, THE STORY OF THE ROYALS explores pivotal moments in the crown's history to find illuminating echoes of our present: with Wallis Simpson, we meet another American divorcee whose illicit romance with King Edward VIII rattled the public's understanding of royal marriage, and cost him the throne. In Princess Diana, we see a deeply relatable face enter the spotlight, inviting the volatile power of modern celebrity to propel the monarchy's image to new heights. In her sons, William and Harry, we see leaders who bridge the gulf between duty and family, serving their people by shamelessly embracing their humanity, placing exemplary acts of compassion front and center. And through all of this tumultuous history stands Queen Elizabeth II, always reshaping the image of the crown to meet the ever-evolving character of her people.
