Royal Bastards on the Telly

A new documentary on ITV1 will find "Lost Royals" by probing the infidelity of British monarchs.

The experts hope to uncover details of the children of unfaithful monarchs such as Charles II (1630-1685), who publicly acknowledged 14 children by seven mistresses.

ITV controller of current affairs and documentaries Jeff Anderson told Broadcast magazine: “For generations, illegitimate royals have been spirited away with a few quid and told to keep quiet.

“Now we’re going to unmask their descendants and reveal how close they really are to Britain’s most privileged family.” [Link]
