Royal Deaths and Diseases

With an ageing monarch and an intense interest in the health of the royal family, this series brings to light the most intimate records of Britain’s kings and queens.

It exposes the secrets of their illnesses, dealings with doctors and reveals the truth behind deaths on the battlefield, failed successions and the often catastrophic consequences of an untimely royal death.
