A look back at events that shaped the monarchy between 1952 and 1972, using dramatic reconstructions and archive film. As the royal family made Windsor its home, Prince Philip grew restless. The Queen assigned him as ranger of Windsor Great Park, but that only led to more problems. Meanwhile, Princess Margaret exhibited a wild streak to her character as a party animal, the Queen Mother reportedly ran up debts of £7million, and the papers began to print stories suggesting extramarital affairs had taken place.
