“If you want to know how the monarchy in this country has survived – don’t look to its monarchs. Look to its Prime Ministers.”

For 70 years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her 12 prime ministers in a private weekly meeting in the Audience Room at Buckingham Palace. The discussions are utterly secret, even to the royal and ministerial spouses. Peter Morgan, author of “The Crown” and “The Queen”, imagines these meetings over the decades of the Queen’s remarkable reign – now celebrating her Platinum Jubilee year – through Prime Ministers from the old warrior Winston Churchill, to Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher and finally David Cameron. The Audience is a glimpse into the woman behind the crown and the moments that have shaped Britain’s modern monarchy.
