Smithsonian Channel is set to premiere the new historical docuseries Private Lives of the Monarchs, which will take a closer look at five European royal households.
The series uncovers what occurred behind closed doors of some of the most iconic rulers from history, including Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, the “mad” King George III, King Louis XIV and Charles II. Host Tracy Borman, joint chief curator of the Royal Palaces, will lead viewers on a tour through the royal palaces and castles of these monarchs to seek out rare documents and artifacts that help tell the stories of their reigns. Private Lives of the Monarchs debuts on Smithsonian Channel on Monday, May 20, at 8 p.m.
Private Lives of the Monarchs is produced by Bruce Burgess and Matthew Bone of Like A Shot Entertainment. Joy Galane and David Royle serve as executive producers for Smithsonian Channel.
