Private Lives of the Monarchs: EPISODE 4

After mental illness sent George III into a steep decline, Parliament handed power down to his son, the Prince Regent, a lascivious, hard-drinking, heavy-gambling bully. Soon afterwards, England's Georgian Era came to a disastrous end. What is the true story behind these two kings? We uncover new analyses that are changing long-held theories about "Mad" King George's condition and reveal how George IV's redesigns of Buckingham Palace made it the royal residence we know today.
