Our obsession with the antics of royal bedrooms, births, and the succession of the British throne is nothing new. Historian Dr. Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, gets into bed with past British monarchs to uncover TALES FROM THE ROYAL BEDCHAMBER, examining the creation of private chambers, exploring the backstairs politics, and looking at the increasingly lavish design of Royal State beds themselves.

Historian Dr. Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, gets into bed with past British monarchs to uncover TALES FROM THE ROYAL BEDCHAMBER. She examines the creation of private chambers in response to the overwhelmingly public nature of royal bedrooms, and explores the backstairs politics which developed as a result. She looks at the increasingly lavish design of Royal State beds and the huge expense which went into these beds in royal palaces and private great houses alike, many of which were never even slept in. In fact, the rise and fall of their magnificent beds reflects the changing fortunes of the monarchy itself.
