Dr. Lucy Worsley explores the royal wardrobes of our kings and queens over the last 400 years, from Elizabeth I to the present Queen Elizabeth II, explaining how the royal wardrobe is a carefully orchestrated piece of theater managed by the royals themselves to control the right image and project the right message to their subjects. Royal fashion is, and always has been, as much about politics as it is about the cut.

Interesting connection of Wardrobe to history

By History Buff

from Keene NH

Comments about PBS Tales from the Royal Wardrobe DVD:

The connections of Wardrobe to History are not something one ordinarily thinks of but this video shows how it can influence how people think about the Monarchy in Britain. The design of Elizabeth I's "Eyes and ears" gown is a good example. Princess Diana's auction was a well-thought out idea- have a "Yard Sale" to clear out you closet, show how your life is moving on, and most importantly, raise a large amount of money for charity (which was something she was known for!) Changes in fashion also had political implications as demonstrated by Charles II's simplification of his wardrobe. Well-produced as all PBS programs are.
