What to Watch Next: The Windsors: Inside The Royal Dynasty


Hailey Krasnikov, Co-Editor-in-Chief

Kings and Queens, the trademarks of thousands of fairy tales we read growing up as kids. But little did we know they actually existed.

The modern British royal family is headed by Queen Elizabeth II, who has spent the most time on the throne out of every other monarch in the United Kingdom history. Of course, we can not simply refer to the royals as just “the royals,” we must acknowledge their dynasty name, Windsor. 

The Windsor family is quite intriguing, and I am not the only one who is fascinated by them. Who wouldn’t be? That is why, “The Windsors: Inside The Royal Dynasty” was created. Well at least, that’s my guess on why it was made.

You can watch this series on HBO Max, it has 6 episodes and they are absolutely captivating! The series introduces the Windsors to the audience from a historical perspective first, then drives into personal affairs such as divoce, death, and romantic forbidden affairs. 

I must admit, I’m a little bias when it comes to this review, I’ve always found the British royal family purely iconic. They live a lifestyle I will never understand or experience, and that’s what makes them special. Well, I guess the fact that they have an extreme abundance of power in the public eye as well is pretty cool too.

It personally shocks me that they allowed this series to be released to the public, it completely destroys their “front” as one might call it. They have a lot of problems in their institution, but no one would ever know that from an outsider point of view. They even touch on Princess Diana and her suffering in the series. 

I would recommend watching this if you love history or drama, or better yet, both! I love the layout of the episodes and I love the commentary within every one. I have no complaints about this series, and I believe it is definitely worth the watch!

Slight warning: the episodes are quite long so watch it when you’re not busy because you will be captivated by the series!
