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.

Our palaces are home to many significant works of art. This series taken from our archives explores the history of art in the palaces, from royal patronage to its modern influence.

This conversation with artist Yinka Shonibare explores how the Georgians have influenced modern art, and how Yinka's own work has explored ideas of race, class and the meaning of cultural and national definitions.

This talk was originally recorded live at Kensington Palace in 2017.
