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.

To celebrate LGBT History Month, we are revisiting a discussion from 2017 where we gathered a panel of experts to explore historical views on LGBTQ+, and to question how far the language and rhetoric of the past has influenced our views on the present.

This talk was originally recorded and released in 2017 on the anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967.
