Fiona Bruce (Antiques Roadshow) tells the fascinating stories behind the creation of Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and leading experts share their knowledge of the Kings and Queens whose vision and taste left their mark on these exceptional buildings. As Fiona takes us on a journey through 1,000 years of history, we discover some of the great treasures from the Royal Collection housed within three world-famous landmarks. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales gives an introduction to the series and tells us of the place the royal palaces have in the life of the Monarchy and in the history of Britain.
