Comedy legend Penelope Keith is to visit the Queen’s official residences and meet the people who keep our traditions alive in a new four-part Channel 4 series.

Produced by Reef Television, Penelope Keith’s Palaces and People will cover residences in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and see Keith visit a royal residence or landmark and explore its surrounding areas.

She’ll visit local events and meet the people who keep these royal traditions alive by holding ceremonial offices that go back many hundreds of years and make up the rich tapestry of Britain’s history.

Richard Farmbrough, CEO of Reef Television said: “Once more Reef is delighted to be working with Penelope Keith on this new series for Channel 4.

“We are thrilled to have secured access to these historic royal locations and to meet the people who dedicate such ardent service to maintaining many of the ancient customs that so enrich our national life.”
