It is always a pleasure for KCWC to welcome Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer back to our podium as a longtime and generous friend of our organisation. He returns to discuss his latest book The White Ship which he describes with characteristic wit as “a cross between Titanic and Game of Thrones – with a slice of Sliding Doors….!”
Lord Spencer has authored seven non-fiction books including “Killers of the King”, the second-highest selling history book in the UK in 2014 and the subject of his last talk to KCWC. In addition to his work as an historian, Lord Spencer was a correspondent on the prestigious and popular Today Show broadcast on the US television network NBC, before work as a reporter for Granada Television. He was the writer/presenter of a 12 part documentary Great Houses of the World, a subject with which he has personal familiarity as the steward of one of England’s greatest stately homes, Althorp. He has written for The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph as well as Vanity Fair. Active in many charitable causes, Lord Spencer’s work for humanitarian organisations globally is well known.
Charles Spencer was educated at Eton and Oxford University earning his MA in Modern History. He has seven children and two stepchildren, and is the brother of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
