On the Queen’s Birthday Holiday Monday, June 10, there will be a complete day of Royal Family programming.
A Right Royal Year

A Right Royal Year takes a look back at what a memorable year the Diamond Jubilee was for the Royal Family in 2012, particularly as it coincided with the London Olympic Games.
In 2011, Prince William’s Wedding to Kate Middleton rekindled the romance between the public and the British royal family. But as the following year loomed a combination of unexpected elements made 2012 a stand out for the Royal Family both personally and publicly, culminating with the exciting news that Princess Kate was pregnant with a Royal Baby expected in July 2013.
This Australian Premiere documentary talks to those who know the royal family intimately, including former MP Ann Widdecombe, Princess Diana’s private secretary Patrick Jephson, the pageant master of the jubilee flotilla Adrian Evans, royal correspondent Robert Jobson and social Historian Dominic Sandbroke.
