King Charles III
Now Streaming and on Broadcast Wednesday, May 24 at 9 p.m.
Prince Charles has waited his entire life to ascend to the British throne. But after the Queen’s death, he immediately finds himself wrestling his conscience over a bill to sign into law. With the future of the monarchy under threat, protests on the streets, and his family in disarray, Charles must grapple with his own identity and purpose, to decide whether the British crown has any real power.
This Masterpiece event is based on the hit Broadway show "King Charles III." A 2016 Tony nominee for Best Play, "King Charles III" imagines Prince Charles’ ascension to the throne following Queen Elizabeth’s death.
