Tim Pigott-Smith & Charlotte Riley Get the Royal Treatment

Warning: This show contains “King Charles III” spoilers. Mike Bartlett’s Tony-nominated play “King Charles III” imagines the contentious ascension of Prince Charles to the throne. The new monarch’s refusal to play by the rules turns nearly everyone against him—from the members of Parliament to his daughter-in-law, Kate. In the wake of the television adaption, the late actor Tim Pigott-Smith (Charles) and Charlotte Riley (Kate) explore playing the real-life royals, the ghost of Princess Diana, and “rebranding” the British monarchy.
