History under the lensRadio Times are celebrating the best of TV, radio and books with a host of stars and TV insiders appearing on The Green at Hampton Court Palace for the Radio Times Festival. Every ticket includes access to gourmet food stalls, a shopping village, free events and screenings.
For this event Philippa Gregory – the bestselling author and co-writer of hit TV series The White Queen – discusses her latest novel, The Taming Of The Queen. Taking Henry VIII’s court as her book’s setting, Gregory weaves a narrative around the life and times of Henry’s last wife, Kateryn Parr. She explores whether Kateryn was a faithful wife and scholarly queen or a heretic and disloyal citizen, and asks, ultimately, why a woman would want to marry a serial killer. A real chance to dig your nails into history.
