Join Historic Royal Palaces' Joint Chief Curators Lucy Worsley and Tracy Borman for a fascinating exploration of the private lives of the Tudors.
In this 1 hour talk online, Lucy and Tracy will discuss the intimate secrets of one of history’s most famous dynasties. From political dramas to scandalous romances, the Tudors were central to the stories of both Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London, shaping how we understand them today. Exploring everything from Henry VIII’s private life with his six wives, to Elizabeth I’s beauty tips, Lucy and Tracy will shine a light on the lesser-known stories of some of the most iconic figures from these palaces’ past.
This event is free to join, but we ask you to consider making a donation of £10 or whatever you can afford.
Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity. The closure of our six sites for four months following the Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our finances. We have begun the phased re-opening of some of our sites, and would love you to show support for us by visiting. We have restricted the number of people allowed on site each day, so you will have the chance of seeing these wonderful places up close, without the usual crowds.
We look forward to you joining our online event.
