Throwback Thursday: Tales from the Royal Bedchamber (2013)

Sex is one of the core components of being human. But sex, like all things related to being human, is complicated.

Tales from the Royal Bedchamber aired on PBS back in 2013. Hosted by historian Lucy Worsley, the documentary takes viewers into the personal and romantic lives of the monarchy. Entangled into the story are concerns about family, children, and the next generation of royals.

I enjoyed this documentary. It could have easily been a dry history lesson talking about kings, queens, and their successors. But Worsley has a way of making history come alive while showing the humanity of the film’s subjects.

I recommend it.
