If you're looking for some new podcasts to listen to, then look no further! Empire Media Group announced on Tuesday, June 7, that they are launching "The Firm: Blood, Lies and Royal Succession," which will debut on Tuesday, June 14.
Over 12 episodes, fans will learn about the ins and out of the royal family — from Prince William and Prince Harry's feud to Queen Elizabeth's reign and much more.
"An investigation into the secrets, scandals, and constitutional crises of the most famous – and infamous – family in the world," the synopsis reads. "From ruthless Virgin Queens to traitorous wartime Kings, from madness and revolution to forbidden sex and shocking deaths, from jealousy and rivalry to brothers and sisters torn apart, this is the real, unvarnished history of the last five centuries of Britain’s Royal Family. We’re going to reveal the real stories behind the airbrushed history book tales, and we’re going to show the lengths to which the self-styled 'Firm' will go in order to keep those stories secret – and to ensure the survival of the Royal Brand… no matter what the cost."
The podcast, which is brought to you by the team behind America's leading royals publication The Royal Observer, will feature plenty of guests, including Eloise Parker, Thomas Mace Archer Mills, Jane Dismore, Andrew Lownie, Steven Hoffenberg, Cele Otnes, Richard Mineards, Jaclyn Roth, Stewart Pearce, Lady Colin Campbell, Mike Sylvestre, Mark Stephens, Gloria Allred, Lisa Bloom and Spencer Kuvin.
The podcast is executive produced by Dylan Howard and Melissa Cronin, with Doug Montero as a producer, Dominic Utton as the writer and Sean Kravitz as the editor.
Since the Queen's Platinum Jubilee just occurred, there's no better time to release the podcast!
"Today, the monarchy still exerts a huge global influence, and if 2022 is the year of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, in which she celebrates an unprecedented 70 years on the throne as Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, it has also been a time of infamy and division for the Windsors, as scandals involving the Queen’s second son Prince Andrew and grandson Prince Harry have threatened to tear the institution apart," the press release states.
"From Queen Elizabeth I, the 'Virgin Queen' who survived war, betrayal, numerous threats to her life and supposedly sacrificed her very womanhood for the country, to Princess Diana, whose tragic early death triggered the greatest peacetime threat to the monarchy in centuries; from the madness of George III, the King who lost America and died locked in his own personal insane asylum, to the treachery of Edward VIII, who at the time of his nation’s greatest need prepared to sell out Britain to Nazi Germany…" the message continues.
