Lucy Worsley OBE DPhil (born 18 December 1973) is a British historian and the Curator of Historic Royal Palaces. Since 2009, she has presented a lot of documentaries.


Dr Worsley's works provide examples of:

  • Big Eater: Many, particularly kings Henry VIII, George IV and Edward VII.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Some of her early programmes had her looking off to the side of the camera instead of addressing it directly.
  • Gorgeous Period Dress: Documentaries frequently involve Lucy modelling elaborate costumes.
  • Iconic Item: Lucy is known for wearing a hair slide. She claims that when she was trying a different hair style, one of her TV producers told her "People won't know it's you without the hair slide."
  • Long List: Try remembering all the programs she's presented, or all the books she's written.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Lucy herself is the apple of many a viewer's eye. This was especially true in the If Walls Could Talk: The History of the Home episode on bathrooms where she could be seen wearing only a towel and sipping a cocktail in a bubble bath.
    • A male example in Reigns of Power with stunt rider Ben Atkinson.

  • Royally Screwed Up: A recurrent theme, especially in Fit to Rule?
