While we often see members of the British Royal Family indulging in the odd extracurricular activity such as water polo, it’s not necessarily common knowledge that there is not only an appreciation of art within the royal lineage, but very real ability as well. In this special, HRH the Prince of Wales, himself no slouch in the watercolors department, provides a guided tour of not only his own accomplished work but that of his kin. Ranging from the embroidery of Mary, Queen of Scots, to the classical architectural drawings of King George III to the paintings of Queen Victoria and Princes Albert and Charles, Royal Paintbox opens a window into a tantalizing and surprising aspect of royal life.
