Deeply respectful of the queen and other working royals doing good things but not afraid to bring the snark when calling out less stellar behavior of the aristocracy makes this my favorite podcast about royalty
Great episode! —and by the way Kate IS great 😊. Also, what an outstanding woman the queen is—much respect to the royal family. History, tradition and future service and duty.
Great podcast. It’s not all rainbows and unicorns. They report warts too. What exactly do Harry and Meghan hope to achieve with these additional claims of racism? Do they want the Queen to abdicate and make Meghan Queen? What do they really want? Sympathy? money? I don’t get it. All families say unkind things. If you say yours doesn’t you are lying Or no one has told you. I can’t divorce my grandma for not liking my husband I can only love her and time will tell who is right and who is wrong.
I like it, it’s fun, VERY tongue in cheek, so you must have a sense of humor about the Royals, ALL of them, to be able to handle listening (that rules out H & M as they take themselves way too seriously & just sue everyone or accuse them of bias if even the slightest eyebrow is raised at their behavior). I think it’s meant to be taken with a grain of salt, but still passes on facts in a minimal, humorous style.
This podcast brings me an absurd amount of joy. It has just the right amount of snark vs decorum, and it is short so I can listen to it on quick drives or in the shower (yes, you frequently shower with me, Mark Frances.) I would also love some longer in-depth episodes. Every day I get giddy anticipating the next episode, and if I realize it’s an episode-less weekend, a single solitary tear slides slowly down my cheek. Keep up the good work!
It is brillant. All the other ones are like a gushing fan club. This one is brief and looks at the Royal Family with a gimlet eye. It also takes the piss out of everyone without being snarky. Ok. A little but all in good fun as only the Brits could do. Fair warning you must love true British humour and not the stuff that is put on for Americans. The moderator is truly wonderful especially when he does different intonations when quoting other people.
Love the irreverent rundown of the daily news. Very amusing and impartial. As for the ads, gotta pay the bills! Fast forward 30 seconds.
I like your dry style and that you quote republic/graham smith rather than keeping it one sided. Fun and entertaining for american fans of the crown to get royal gossip without the usual syncophantism.
This podcast is informative and fun. The host and producer are clever and make each episode stand by itself. There’s a snarky bit of humor here and there, but overall, they remain very respectful to the role of Queen and the royal family. As a US fan of the royals with family ties to the UK, it is nice to hear about all the goings on across the pond. You know how some people can imagine Morgan Freeman narrating their life’s story? Well, I can now imagine the host of Palace Intrigue, Mark Francis, narrating my life in 4 minute snipets.
Love this podcast! All these authors need to donate a percentage point of all the profits they’ve made from so-called stories about Harry & Meghan to the various charities that the couple support.
Entertaining Royal news! However they definitely have a bias toward loving Harry and Meghan and throwing shade at those who criticize them. I like Harry and Meghan but they have made some major slip ups lately and there is more to their negative press than just media bias. I would like the podcast more if they were more balanced and told both sides of the story.
