An audience with Robert Hardman

Hotel Mundial, Lisbon | Thursday 4 October, 2018

‘A Celebration of Lisbon and the Douro’ is one of our most popular river cruises – and no wonder. It travels through the Douro Valley’s most spectacular scenery in the most luxurious way possible: on board the Spirit of Chartwell. This boutique ship has the royal seal of approval, having been chosen to carry the Queen during her Diamond Jubilee pageant. Its nickname? The Royal Barge.

When we heard that renowned royal biographer Robert Hardman was off on a worldwide tour for his new book, ‘Queen of the World’, we jumped at the chance to invite him to Portugal. Robert joined us in Lisbon, just before we set sail on Spirit of Chartwell.

Robert hosted an exclusive talk and Q&A session with the group about the book and the accompanying ITV series (which he produced) – the perfect introduction to our cruise aboard the Royal Barge. Want to know what he chatted about? Simply click the video below to start watching…
