Penelope Keith at Her Majesty's Service

In the four-part series, Dame Penelope Keith, host of Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages, travels across the United Kingdom and escorts viewers behind the closed doors of Queen Elizabeth's royal residences. Each episode focuses on one of the famous castles of the British royal family: Windsor in London, Holyrood and Inveraray in Scotland, Hillsborough in Northern Ireland and Caernarfon in Wales. At every stop, Penelope gains access to rooms not typically seen by tourists and witnesses the daily life of palace staff. She also encounters unique household positions including a royal herb strewer, a harpist and a falconer and finds out what it takes to keep a castle running smoothly.

The series continues Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
