BBC Two's adaption of Mike Bartlett's award-winning and internationally acclaimed play.

Prince Charles has waited a lifetime to ascend to the throne. But after the Queen’s death he finds himself wrestling his conscience over a bill to sign into law. His hesitation detonates a constitutional and political crisis and divides his family, with William and Kate realising his actions may threaten their future.

Meanwhile an unhappy Prince Harry starts a relationship with a commoner, just when the press is looking to attack…

With the Monarchy's future under threat, protests on the streets and his family in disarray, Charles must grapple with his identity and purpose, to decide whether the Crown still has any real power.
