Our Lives: You Shall Go to the Ball (S5EP16 BBC One Mon 23 May 2022)



You Shall Go to the Ball: The Queen Charlotte’s Ball is the world’s most prestigious debutante ball and the highlight of the London Season. It’s been a rite of passage for the privileged daughters of British aristocracy for centuries.

However, the London Season has recently been fighting for its survival. Now, it’s welcoming debutantes from all walks of life, making this a dream come true for Jasleen from Cardiff, the first debutante of Indian ancestry in the institution’s 250-year history.

Will Jasleen be able to pass for a princess, and will the London Season actually change?
