||Will the 21st century witness the demise of royalty as we know it? The evidence certainly points in that direction, as this documentary illustrates. The past may have seen royalty across the globe enjoying unprecedented powers, but these have subsided substantially, leading to furious debate as to the purpose they serve. The history and potential futures of four different royal families are discussed at length; the families in question hail from England, Nepal, Buganda, and Tonga. A fascinating glimpse into a fading institution that is both educational and entertaining, THE LAST ROYALS is a welcome addition to the pantheon of material about the royal families of the world.
