CNN Original Series’ six-parter The Windsors: Inside the Royal Dynasty will chronicle the history of the British Royal Family, the Windsors, this February.

The docuseries premiere, “Succession,” will follow Prince Edward’s decision to abdicate the throne in 1936 and marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson, leaving his younger brother King George to run the country.

From there, the series tracks the family’s history, from the death of Princess Diana in 1997 to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (pictured) in May 2018.

The Windsors: Inside the Royal Dynasty, premiering Feb. 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, will include footage and interviews with “insiders” to weave together the story of the family.

Executive producers are Louise Norman and Melanie Archer for UK-based prodco Raw. Amy Entelis and Lyle Gamm serve as executive producers for CNN Original Series.

CNN Original Series will also debut the second season of the six-part series Race for the White House Feb. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Each episode uses archival footage, interviews and dramatizations to tell the story of an “iconic” campaign for the U.S. presidency, from Wilson vs. Roosevelt in 1912 to Obama vs. McCain in 2008.

Norman and Archer serve as executive producers for Race for the White House. Entelis and Lizzie Fox are executive producing for CNN Original Series.
