Dr Starkey covers topics such as: What was it like to be a royal child in medieval times? How have the laws of succession changed? What might the future hold for William and Catherine's child?

2013 sees events to mark the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the birth of her grandson's first child. This app will help you discover more about nearly two thousand years of Britain's kings and queens.
