Many are familiar with King George VI and his older brother Edward, who rejected the throne for love. Few, however, know much about their siblings, Mary, Henry, George, and John. Join us as we examine the private lives of the first young Windsors across the social and political backdrop of the 1920s, '30s, and '40s. Through never-before-seen letters, diaries, and photographs belonging to the siblings, we reveal their hidden stories in their own words.

In 1918, monarchies surrounding Britain were falling fast, and King George V knew he needed to rebrand if he wanted to hold onto his throne. He changed the family name from the German "Saxe-Coburg and Gotha" to the quintessentially British "Windsor," and then sent his children out into the world to win over the hearts and minds of the British public. Thanks to newly released diaries and letters of the king's children, we go behind the royal facade to reveal secrets and untold family dramas.
