BBC’s ‘Born To Royalty’ Promises Detailed Insight Into Raising A Windsor Child

Today, BBC Worldwide announced the theatrical release of Born To Royalty, a documentary about the British monarchy narrated by Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville.

The film, geared towards an American audience, opens in select theaters across the country July 19th.  This coincides with the impending birth of Great Britain’s third-in-line, and reveals rarely-seen footage of the Windsors dating back to George VI.  Interviews will include royal experts like Majesty Magazine’s Ingrid Seward, the Princess of Wales’ former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe and royal biographer Katie Nicholl.

“I am very honored to be a producer on such an important documentary – Born To Royalty – and be able to bring this tale to the American audience,” EVP of Licensing and Home Entertainment Soumya Sriraman said in a press release.  “I join the rest of America in my fascination with the Royal Family, but this film is more than just a documentary about the Royals- it is a look at how parenting continues to evolve with every generation.”

Viewers will be treated to a look at how royals rear their offspring and prepare them for a life of duty.  One will notice that later generations become more hands-on with their children, contrasting greatly to even a time (just sixty or so years ago) when Queen Elizabeth was a young mother.
