As we prepare to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, showbiz legend and ardent Royalist Joan Collins takes us on a personal trip down memory Mall through the life of the monarch.
Starting with her earliest memories of trying to join the VE Day celebrations to see the Royal family; to friends and neighbours crowding round the family TV to watch the Coronation; not to mention joining in the Silver Jubilee celebrations LA style with sister Jackie, Rod Stewart, Dudley Moore and of course bangers mash and champagne...
Joining Joan to offer their fascinating insights into what unfolded behind Palace doors during these momentous events are Dickie Arbiter, former Press Secretary to Her Majesty; The Sunday Express Royal Editor Camilla Tominey and The Sun’s Royal Photographer Arthur Edwards talks Joan through not only classic photos from the Sovereign’s reign, but also the actual uniform the Queen wore during her service at the Auxiliary Territorial Service kindly loaned to us by the National Army Museum.
So if you want to get into the Jubilee spirit, grab your tea and biccies put your feet up, and get ready for our two part Joan Collins special.
