THIS IS A YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL 2022 EVENT
Tracy Borman - Crown & Sceptre
The British monarchy is the one of the most iconic and enduring institutions in the world. It has weathered the storms of rebellion, revolution and war that brought many of Europe's royal families to an abrupt and bloody end. Its unique survival owes much to the fact that, for all its ancient traditions and protocol, the royal family has proved remarkably responsive to change, evolving to reflect the times. But for much of its history, it also spearheaded seismic change, shaping our religious, political and cultural identity and establishing the British monarchy as the envy of the world.
Tracy Borman is joint Chief Curator of Historic Royal Palaces and Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust. She is a regular broadcaster and the author of a number of highly acclaimed books including The Private Lives of the Tudors, Thomas Cromwell and Elizabeth's Women.
