Way better than I'd expected!
I'm not normally into Non-Fiction or biographies of any form (books or shows) but this was surprisingly interesting to listen to.
I'm only a few chapters in but I'm suddenly wondering why I disliked History so much at school! The shows go through the decades - from the 1920 - and tell you the story of how the Royals have been giving to the country throughout.
As the narrator put it, the Monarchy have to do the impossible by "appearing grander than then people, servants of the people and of the people, all at the same time".
Plus it was free so why wouldn't you at least give it a go!
