David Starkey

A Monarchy Of Misfits

Crewe Lyceum Theatre

Sunday 17 March, 2:30 PM

David Starkey
SHOW INFORMATION PRE-SHOW DINING

The marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when the second son of the Prince of the Wales married a divorced American actress of mixed race and uncertain religion, was
seen as marking a fundamental modernisation of the British monarchy.

Actually it was only a return the 14th century when one of the many sons of King Edward III married a twice-divorced merry widow who’d eloped with her first husband at the age
of 12; another a part-Moorish Spanish princess who (it is claimed) was a direct descendent of the Prophet Muhammad; while a third wed the au pair.

This lecture traces the radically shifting marriage customs of the British monarchy, from the laxity of the Middle Ages, through the stringencies of the Hanoverians, to the house of Windsor and its sometimes contorted adaptations to the realities of modern family life.
