All eyes have been on the Royal Family over the past couple of weeks, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

But while people are adjusting to having a new King, one BBC film, broadcast in 2017, imagined what the reign of King Charles III might be like.
It received two nominations at the 2018 TV Baftas: best single drama and best actor for Pigott-Smith.
