The private lives of the Tudors will be laid bare at Wycliffe College next week when a Sunday Times bestselling author delivers the school’s annual history lecture.

Historian Dr Tracy Borman, whose book ‘Elizabeth’s Women’ was Radio 4’s Book of the Week, will be airing the royal dynasty’s dirty laundry on April 30 from 6pm to 7pm in the college chapel.

She’ll detail the tears shed by Henry VII upon the death of his son Arthur and the real cause of ‘Bloody’ Mary’s protracted (and fruitless) pregnancies.

“This is sure to be an incredible evening of fascinating historical revelations - we look forward to seeing you there,” said Wycliffe College’s Katie Smith.

Tracy is joint chief curator of charity Historic Royal Palaces, which looks after some of the UK’s unoccupied royal dwellings, giving her unprecedented access to archives and collections.
