The King’s Challenge

The King’s Challenge

By Global

For the first time in over 70 years, the United Kingdom's head of state is a King, not a Queen. Charles III begins his reign as a monarch already well known to his public. His long held views have been aired, his life documented by television and tabloids, his relationships picked over through fifty years of adult life.

How will this change the type of monarchy we have and the connection the king and his country share? We hear from eminent historians, civil servants, thinkers about the challenges this could pose.

Historians Simon Schama and Dan Snow, former Cabinet Secretary Gus O'Donnell, journalist Ash Sarkar and former Supreme Court Lord Jonathan Sumption join us on the podcast.
