Written by Stephen Poliakoff, The Lost Prince tells the story of Prince John, the youngest son of George V, born into a world of imperial splendour.
Prince John was born epileptic, and with a form of autism. His parents - the newly crowned George V and the terrifying Queen Mary were thrown into a personal turmoil. Lala Bill, the child's nanny, sees off the sadistic children's governess and becomes Prince John's saviour in her struggle to give him some vestige of a normal and loving life.
This was a period where all the inter-related royal families of Europe, especially those of Russia, were battling for their existence; and where the whole world was tumbling towards war. Seeing this era through a child's eyes not only allows us to see history in an entirely fresh and original way, but also allows us to focus on an intensely moving and personal story.
