Antiques Roadshow to celebrate life of Queen Elizabeth II



2015-09-02 11:32:02

Antiques Roadshow will tell the life story of Queen Elizabeth II through letters, memorabilia and acquaintances in a special episode broadcast to mark the moment she becomes Britains longest serving monarch. 

The episode will bring together a series of letters written by the Queen, including a letter to the BBC's superintendant of lighting Harold Mayhew whom she adresses as 'Mr Grump' after hearing from his collegues that he could be rather dour. 

It will be broadcast on the 13th of September-4 days after Queen Elizabeth II becomes the longest serving monarch in British history, beating the pervious record set by her great great grandmother Queen Victoria.
