Seven, 8pm

Herald Sun - Hit - - TOP PICKS -

It’s time to stir up some royal fer­vour ahead of the Com­mon­wealth tour next month. This doco re­cruits plenty of Amer­i­can com­men­ta­tors (they’ve even dug up Meghan’s theatre pro­fes­sor), and it gives you a feel for how in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion of roy­als are in the US. “Un­like the Kar­dashi­ans, this soap opera has a her­itage,” they say. Fresh footage of Meghan and Harry’s wedding is spliced with a his­tory les­son dat­ing back to Ed­ward VIII, who is de­scribed as the first vic­tim of the pa­parazzi.
