Join us at Stanfords as Caroline Taggart talks about her new book Bognor and Other Regises: A potted history of Britain in 100 royal places.
The Sunday Times Bestselling author presents a round-up of Britain’s most fascinating royal attractions. Shining a spotlight on some of Britain’s quirkiest royals and uncovering fascinating facts and anecdotes about them all.
Right through from Ethelred the Unready to Elizabeth II, from the Isle of Skye to Glastonbury Abby, Caroline taps into the nation’s fascination with royalty past and present.
Whether glamorous or sordid, merrie or morose, our monarchs and their families have led lives very different from ours – and all too often they’ve held the Fate of the Nation in the palms of their hands. They’ve married for diplomatic reasons and created diplomatic incidents when they divorced. They’ve borne a dozen children and still left no one to succeed them. They’ve got themselves excommunicated and created their own religions. They’ve waged war against their neighbours and their cousins; built frivolous summer palaces and formidable fortresses. In so doing, they’ve left their mark all over Great Britain, in castles and churches, on battlefields and stained-glass windows. Their stories are written all across our landscape, if we know where to look for them.
