This Christmas, ITV will tap into the fascination surrounding the royal family – which has reached fever pitch in recent weeks in the wake of Prince Harry’s engagement to Suits star Meghan Markle and ahead of the release of The Crown series two – with a Right Royal Quiz, a new show presented by Fern Britton.

Billed as “Britain’s first ever panel show about the monarchy”, the one-off special will pit two celebrity teams (yet to be announced) against one another to discover what they know about Queen Elizabeth II and her descendants.
