Then former communications Secretary to the Queen Simon Lewis explains how he modernized the British monarchy. Secretary-General of the Commonwealth of Nations Patricia Scotland digs deeper into his extraordinary and often candid and exuberant contribution to the UK and the Commonwealth. Historians Simon Schama and Margaret MacMillan also weigh in on this historic day and discuss the future of the royal family. Then turning to Iran, the country’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh explains why Tehran won't engage with Washington until the Biden administration rejoins the nuclear deal.
