A new look at the man who was born to be King 

Most of us have only ever known a world where Elizabeth II was Queen. For many, the British monarchy was the Queen. But now that her long reign has come to an end, her son has become King Charles III. Charles is the oldest monarch ever to ascend to the British throne. He is now the head of the most famous family in the world.

But who is the man who was born to be King? What kind of King will he be? And, as King, will he ever command the same affection and respect as his mother? Told through ITN’s unprecedented and exclusive collection of rare royal archive and revelatory new interviews from those closest to Charles, this insightful and timely documentary series explores those important and pivotal moments in his life that shaped him from royal infant to King.
