Tina Brown talks to Simon Schama

Women & Power: Queen Elizabeth II – 70 Years on the Throne

Hay Festival 2022, 

Marking the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, Tina Brown takes us behind the Palace walls. The former editor of Vanity Fair and author of The Diana Chronicles tells in The Palace Papers the real story of the Royal Family, exploring Prince Charles’ determination to make Camilla his wife, the ascendance of the resolute Kate Middleton, the disturbing allegations surrounding Prince Andrew and Harry and Meghan’s decision to step back as senior Royals. With nuanced details and searing insight, Brown changes how we perceive and understand the Royal Family, in conversation with historian, writer and documentarian Simon Schama.
