Historic Royal Palaces Podcast

Historic Royal Palaces are a team of people who love and look after six of the most wonderful palaces in the world. This fortnightly podcast brings you the history and stories of those palaces.

You’ll hear from our experts and the people who bring our palaces to life, as we create space to explore how history moves us, telling stories about the monarchs you know, and uncovering the lives and histories of the people you don’t.

Just like our palaces, this podcast is a mix of old and new. Each episode will have a different feel, from previously recorded live talks, to exciting new discussions and discoveries. You’ll have every opportunity to share in the history we love.    

Explore more history and stories from our six palaces

In this new six-part mini-series, we’ll be exploring a selection of treasured spaces in our palaces with the people who know them best, our curators.  

Some spaces will be grand and some modest, some aren’t even open to the public. But each space has been personally chosen by our resident experts to reveal how immersing ourselves in the past can connect us to the present.  

In this first episode we’ll follow Chief Curator Lucy Worsley, into the pomp of Kensington Palace, to a staircase that has a lot more to reveal about the Georgian court than you would think.
