The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors in nine films Told by Huw Wheldon
Edward VII was the first British monarch to travel widely overseas, a custom which has been extended in modern times with the State visits of our present Queen in the Royal Yacht Britannia. Britannia is the latest in the line of Royal Palaces.
In the 1860s Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, acquired Sandringham in Norfolk as a country retreat and it has remained a favourite home for later members of the Royal Family. His successor, George V, opened up Holyrood House for State visits to Edinburgh, and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother has continued the link with Scotland by renovating the Castle of Mey on the coast of Caithness, the most northerly castle in Britain. In this final programme Sir Huw Wheldon looks at some of the beautiful and surprising modern acquisitions to the Royal Collection.
