Hatfield House will appear on the BBC tonight

HATFIELD House will feature tonight (Monday) on a show exploring how the physical and mental health of past monarchs has shaped our nation.

Filming took place at the stately home last October and the episode, called Fit To Rule: How Royal Illness Changed History, will air on BBC Two.

In the first show, of the three-part series, Lucy Worsley, chief curator at historic royal palaces, will look at the medical histories of the Tudor and Stuart dynasties.

She will begin with the ascension of Henry VIII and tracing the changing fortunes of these two royal families up to the execution of Charles I.

Lucy will look at a range of issues including why Henry V111 struggled to produce a male heir.

The show begins at 9pm and will last for one hour.
