The Royals hold over 100 military titles between them, and five generations of Windsor's have served in the forces, several on the front line. Royals on the Frontline follows the timeline of the Royal Family from the early 20th Century with WW2 to the modern-day conflicts such as Afghanistan.
Stories include the familiar such as Prince Harry's evacuation from the frontline when his position was revealed by the press or the reasons behind Prince Edward leaving the Royal Marines mid training, to the more unknown such as Prince Andrew's helicopter decoy exploits in the Falklands or our Queen's rebellion against her father by joining the ATS in WW2.
Over the course of this series these three compelling episodes aim to give the audience an unprecedented insight into the Royals and the armed services that fight in their name.

The final episode delves into the highs and lows of Prince Harry and Prince William's roles in the armed forces.
With extracts from an interview with Prince Harry – he discusses his anger when he is forced to pull out of secret deployment in Afghanistan after a newspaper blows his cover, plus there is unique footage of the Prince in the warzone. Prince William suffers even greater frustration as he is refused permission to fly at all. But both princes pick themselves up: Harry embarked on a glittering, decade-long military career culminating in commanding an Apache helicopter and William's military training came in handy as he rescued a former soldier while working with the Air Ambulance. And, with the birth of William's children, the focus shifts what the future holds for the captivating relationship between the military and the Royals.
