RachelReviewed in the United States on January 26, 2019
4.0 out of 5 starsEverything has presented over &over again, now just wrapped all in one-Again.
Some things, such as information, pictures, videos, etc, are newer to be seen or have been rarely published. But overall mostly everything gone over in this four part series has been minor to major headlines all wrapped together for the purpose of this documentary. A lot of what is shown is very repetitive, especially the first several minutes of each episode, much longer than an intro or recap needs to be; felt like I was rewatchine the previous episode all over again. I feel as if those particular moments &/or many other topics could have gone without and been covered/filled with many other things to make this more enjoyable, interesting, or shed a new light on this/that topic/area of the Royal Family.

5.0 out of 5 starsWonderful historical documentary
I watched the series on Youtube and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've studied British history extensively over the past few years, and although much of the information was already familiar to me, I still appreciate the series and I recommend it to this millennial generation.
