Hannah Scott-Joynt visits the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. She explores the most famous school in the world, Eton College and discovers more about the royal links to the River Thames. We also find out more about a day organised by the Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion, at Buckingham Palace and the royal tailors Henry Poole & Co on Savile Row.
Hannah visits Richmond Park where she discovers more about the famous deer of this royal park and makes a trip to the Royal Ballet School located in the park’s famous White Lodge. She also makes a stop in the poppy factory to discover why they hold a royal warrant. The programme also features a couple receiving their MBE’s from HRH Prince Charles and a brewery with a royal warrant for supplying Her Majesty the Queen.
Hannah takes a trip to Royal Tunbridge Wells and walks along the famous Pantiles. After that she plays a heated game of croquet with the Royal Tunbridge Wells Croquet Club. We meet royal warrant holders Hare and Humphries who hold the prestigious title of ‘Gilders and Decorators to the Queen” and we profile the London based royal portrait artist, Rupert Alexander. The viewer will also discover more about the Royal Horticultural Society and their Westminster Flowers shows.
Hannah explores the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and learns more about the area known as Albertopolis. Highlights include a tour of Kensington Palace and a visit to the Royal College of Art. The viewer will also find out more about the Arundel Wetlands Centre and what their royal patronage means to them. Also, we discover more about the art of making besom brooms and why a family from Hampshire are so proud of their royal warrant they received for making them.
Hannah discovers more about the origins of Bognor Regis and then travels further inland to visit the stately home of Goodwood. Hannah meets the Earl of March, a direct descendant of Charles II and watches our Queen’s favourite sport, horseracing. We also follow the Duke of York on a royal visit for World Maritime Day and discover more about the Royal Warrant holders James Purdey & Sons Ltd, the shotgun makers.
Hannah concludes the series by exploreing Westminster Abbey's unique relationship with the monarchy as a `Royal Peculiar' owing allegiance to no institution other than the monarchy. Plus, the story of family perfume business Floris, which has held royal warrants of every reigning monarch since 1820 and the forgotten Prince Frederick of Kew.
