More About This episode

The Royal Family is one of Britain's best-loved institutions, but throughout the 20th century, they had to overcome scandals, wars, and abdication in order to preserve their monarchy. Revisit the British royals of the early 1900s, from the reclusive Queen Victoria to her son Edward VII, and from the reluctant George VI to the young Elizabeth II. Through rarely seen, colorized footage of weddings, wars, coronations, and funerals, this is a unique look at how the House of Windsor bounced back from the brink of disaster.
