To Catch a King

In January 1649, Charles I was beheaded on the block in Whitehall and Britain became a republic.

Two years later, his son, the future Charles II, returned from France with an army seeking to regain the throne. The Royalists were overthrown by Cromwell’s forces at Worcester and Charles II was forced to flee with a vast sum on his head.

In this talk, bestselling author and historian Earl Spencer recounts the true story of one of the greatest escapes in British history.
