"The undisputed Queen of TV history"
— Guardian 2015

Dr Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, is passionate about making history engaging to the widest possible audience.

Her upcoming biography of Jane Austen takes at new look at Jane Austen’s life. It considers what home meant to Jane, and tells the story through the rooms, spaces, possessions and places which mattered to her. Dispelling the myth of the cynical, lonely spinster Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time, who refused to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.
