This is one of the best things I have ever seen on the television. The Lost Prince is the story of Prince John, who was the youngest son of George V, who was kept away from the public eye after he was diagnosed epileptic. The drama tells the story of Prince John, Prince George the second from youngest son, Lalla who was John's nanny and the King and Queen at the time - George V and Queen Mary.
The Lost Prince was very well made in every way, excellent performances from all the actors, including Bill Nighy, Gina McKee and Tom Hollander, especially Miranda Richardson as the Queen and the four child actors who played Prince John and Prince George. The scenery was very nice and the music was great.
The only criticism is that it should be on the television more, as it's a shame that now the only way you can see it is to buy it.
