Pod Save The Queen - Royal family news, interviews and fashion

Wednesday, 31 January

Prince William and Kate Middleton are on a royal tour to Sweden and Norway - but their visit is also a political one.
With Brexit looming, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge represent Britain's charm offensive to Europe.

But that doesn't mean the visit is all work, as they make friends with Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel.

Pod Save The Queen host Ann Gripper is joined by royal correspondent Victoria Murphy, who is travelling with the Cambridges, and head of politics Jason Beattie to discuss where politics and the royal family meet.

How political are the royals allowed to be? How does the Queen fit in - and what does she make of her Prime Ministers? And how has William and Kate's visit to Sweden been going?

Plus they round up the latest rumours about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding - including whether the bride might make a speech. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
