Expert on the British constitution, British politics, society and business
Public intellectual who appears regularly as a commentator on current affairs programmes
Professor David Starkey is the UK’s leading constitutional and monarchy expert and a colourful media personality. He appears frequently on television and radio, often invited onto such programmes as BBC’s Question Time and Newsnight.
David’s documentaries on the lives of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I both achieved the highest-ever viewer ratings for history programmes screened on Channel 4, with audiences of up to 3.5 million. These programmes were followed by The Six Wives of Henry VIII for Channel 4, which also proved very popular.
David has written or edited several books, including “Rivals in Power”, “The Reign of Henry VIII: Personalities and Politics”, “English Court from the Wars of the Roses to the Civil War”, and “Elizabeth: Apprenticeship”. The latter was rated the number one non-fiction best-seller in The Times.
David has lectured in international history at LSE, and is now a bye-fellow at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He is a consultant to the American network CBS on all constitutional matters.
