Tales From The Royal Wardrobe
Today, few people’s clothes attract as much attention as the royal family but this is not a modern day Hello magazine inspired obsession. As Dr Lucy Worsley reveals, it has always been this way. Exploring the royal wardrobes of our Kings and Queens over the last four hundred years, Lucy shows this isn’t just a public pre-occupation, but our monarchs as well. From Elizabeth I to our present Queen, Lucy believes that the royal wardrobe’s significance goes way beyond the cut and colour of the clothing. Royal fashion is and has always been regarded as their personal statement to their people. So most Kings and Queens have carefully choreographed every aspect of their wardrobe and for those who have not, there have sometimes been calamitous consequences.
