Prince Albert: A Victorian Hero Revealed airs Sat 24 Aug on Channel 4



Professor Saul David examines Prince Albert’s significant influence on British culture, governmental policy and even international relations in his short life. The queen’s consort faced an uphill struggle to be taken seriously by a nation and parliament that viewed him with hostility, but by the time of his death at the age of 42, he was widely regarded as a forward-thinking reformer. The programme draws on the private papers in the Royal Archives to gain a full picture of his legacy.

Airdate: Saturday 24 August 2019 at 8.00pm on Channel 4.
