Summary:
The Windsors: A Royal Family : Behind the pomp and pageantry of royalty is a family as compelling as it is renowned. Spanning four generations--from the early 1900s and the reign of King George V, through Diana's tragic death and a new millennium--this four-hour retrospective is highlighted by rare footage and revealing interviews with royal family members, friends, aides, historians, royal watchers, and others with intimate knowledge of the Windsors.

Explore the separation and divorce of Charles and Diana and see clips of Diana's tell-all interview on British TV. Listen to the passionate conversations between Charles and "true love" Camilla Parker-Bowles. See a rare 1970 interview with former King Edward VIII as he shares personal thoughts about his abdication. And much more!

BONUS DVD! Masterpiece Theatre's Bertie & Elizabeth: Wars and kings come and go, but love endures in this story of one of the most enchanting and successful royal marriages ever. Albert, Duke of York, and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon married in 1923, expecting a life of genteel obscurity. But in 1936, after Bertie's older brother, Edward VIII, abdicated to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson, shy and modest Bertie was crowned George VI, just as his country faced the onslaught of WWII. With the help of his devoted wife, and their daughters Elizabeth and Margaret, together Bertie and Elizabeth inspired a nation soon embroiled in a horrific war.

Bertie & Elizabeth includes described video for the visually impaired.
