LISTEN: Why Kate chose to record her video and why it was always on the cards

In this episode, we’re joined by royal author Robert Hardman, who talks about King Charles and Queen Camilla’s visits to Kate whilst she was hospitalised. He also discusses His Majesty’s private lunch with his “wonderful” daughter-in-law at Windsor Castle, which took place just hours before her shocking video message was released to the world.

Robert also details how the King's relationship with Prince William has changed over the last few years and how this uncertain period for the Prince could be “the making of a King”.
