Synopsis >

The second episode marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee assesses her moves to modernize the monarchy over the past 60 years, including the abolition of the presentation of debutantes in 1958 and the opening up of royal homes to the public. Presenter Andrew Marr also explores the challenges faced by the royal family following the `annus horribilis' of 1992, which saw the break-up of two marriages, one divorce and the fire at Windsor Castle, and also focuses on Her Majesty's historic visit to Ireland last year - the first visit by a British monarch in 100 years.
