One Day at UBC: Scandals and Extravagance - Lives of the British Aristocracy

Discover the larger-than-life stories of the British aristocracy through the lens of the 7 Deadly Sins of Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Wrath and Sloth (with a few added sins, such as traitorous behaviour, murder and cannibalism thrown in for good measure). Learn about some of the more colourful members of the Stuart, Hanover, Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Windsor families, along with members of other prominent aristocratic dynasties. Explore the ranks of the aristocracy, and like Meghan, the newly appointed Duchess of Sussex, you will uncover how to go about the process of entering the aristocracy
