Of Kings and Catastrophes

One year ago today, the late Queen Elizabeth II appointed Liz Truss as her 15th – and final – prime minister. Her Late Majesty died two days later, and Truss was gone not long after that.

This edition of The Mark Steyn Show first aired the day of Her Late Majesty's funeral, September 19, 2022. In it, Mark welcomes historian Helen Rappaport, a specialist in two contrasting dynasties – the Romanovs and the Windsors – whose respective fates form the extremes of monarchical outcomes in this most unmonarchical age.

~To see The Mark Steyn Show live and in-person, join Mark and his special guests aboard the 2024 Mark Steyn Cruise on the Caribbean. Joining Mark will be Michele Bachmann, James "Mr Snerdley" Golden, Leilani Dowding, Conrad Black, Andrew Lawton, and more to be announced. Cabins are available here.

~Many viewers have asked how they can support Mark's lawsuit in the English High Court against the partial and totalitarian UK media censor Ofcom. There are several ways, including:

a) signing up a friend for a Steyn Club Gift Membership;

b) buying a loved one a SteynOnline gift certificate; or

c) ordering a copy of Mark's new book The Prisoner of Windsor.

As we have noted, the post-Steyn GB News will not be standing with Steyn and Naomi Wolf in court. But the "chilling effect" of Ofcom on public discourse is far worse than Canada under Section 13 or Australia under Section 18C, so battle must be joined.

~Among the benefits of Mark Steyn Club membership is that you can enjoy The Mark Steyn Show in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you find Mark and his guests more convivial in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio and Transcript versions.

~And finally, as noted above, The Prisoner of Windsor is out and available. For the Kindle edition around the world, please click below:
