The Private Lives of the Tudors

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Tudor monarchs were constantly surrounded by an army of attendants, courtiers and ministers. Even in their most private moments, they were accompanied by a servant specifically appointed for the task. A groom of the stool would stand patiently by as Henry VIII performed his daily purges, and when Elizabeth I retired for the evening, one of her female servants would sleep at the end of her bed.

It is the accounts of these eyewitnesses, as well as a rich array of other contemporary sources, that historian and Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces Tracy Borman has examined more closely than ever before.

Cost: £5
