Richard’s future on the throne is called into doubt next week when the scheming Princess Eleanor discovers that Queen Charlotte had an affair many years ago, in next week’s The Palace (ITV1).
Eleanor leaks her dicovery to the Archbishop, who in turn questions Iain, who is forced to ask Queen Charlotte about these delicate matters. When the Queen reluctantly admits he might be illegitimate Richard is forced to take a DNA test to prove his paternity.
Is the delightfully dim Prince George about to be crowned King?
The Palace, Monday 3 March 2008 9:00pm ITV1
