Scully/The World Show

Harold Brooks-Baker (#112)

Harold Brooks-Baker, the great specialist on the history of the royal families of Europe, explains why it is impossible for Queen Elizabeth to even think of abdicating. The things he says about Prince Charles, his social engagement, his relationship with his two sons, his marriage to Diana, reveal a much warmer and more sensitive man than expected. Brooks-Baker's genealogical research has also led him to discover that certain American Presidents, including Bill Clinton, George Bush, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon have blue blood.
