Many Grace and Favour residents had connections with British India. Hear some of their stories and in particular meet Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, royal suffragette, and subject of Anita Anand’s recent biography. In 1902, 1911, 1919 and 1937 ‘colonial’ troops from India and nearby countries were based at Hampton Court. See what their camps were like and how they affected the British people they came into contact with.

Ian Franklin has been a State Apartment Warder at Hampton Court Palace for 18 years. He has featured on Sky and Discovery TV as well as all the major terrestrial TV channels, local and national radio.
