King Charles III’s reign has ‘parallels’ to ‘suppressed’ Queen Victoria’s | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Royal Mob is a Sky History series about Queen Victoria’s family tree, which focuses on her 4 “favourite” granddaughters, the Hesse sisters. She was the late Queen Elizabeth II’s and the late Prince Philip’s great-great-grandmother. As their eldest son King Charles III awaits his coronation, historian Miranda Carter and showrunner Tom Stubberfield compared his reign with Queen Victoria’s. 

Royal Mob was the term Victoria used to explain her family which consisted of nine children, 42 grandchildren and 87 great-grandchildren.

Historian Miranda Carter, who was a part of the show Royal Mob, opened as much as Express.co.uk and other media in regards to the monarch’s 60-year reign and the First World War which followed. 

She explained: “I feel the thing about her is her extraordinary, forceful personality, as you may tell.

“And certainly one of the explanations for this was that she mainly thought she was never unsuitable.

“That dated back to when she first became Queen when she’d had this childhood, where her mother kind of mainly tried to kind of suppress her, and produce her up in order that she’d be submissive.”

When she became Queen on the age of 18, she “suddenly had all this power” and Miranda claimed she refused to ever be unsuitable about anything. 

In the most recent episode of the four-part series, viewers follow how her relatives caused the First World War several years after she died. 

When her nephew Wilhelm II declared war on Russia the Hesse sisters were forced to take sides. 

“You’ll be able to definitely see in Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, form of an idea in regards to the Russian empire that goes straight back to the Tzars, no doubt.

Showrunner Tom added: “There’s definitely a parallel between our story 100 years ago, and what is going on on today.”
