Welcome to the website of CHRISTOPHER WARWICK, Writer, Biographer and Broadcaster.
Christopher is a well known and well respected writer and biographer, broadcaster and speaker, who is regularly invited to take part in television and radio programmes to discuss topical news issues. He has so far published 14 books, including best-selling authorized biographies of HRH The Princess Margaret and Sir Peter Ustinov. HER MAJESTY, the first ever royal book produced by international publisher TASCHEN, on which Christopher worked as author and consultant, is a sumptuously illustrated large-format, tri-lingual Art Book published in tribute to the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
As a first rate communicator, television and radio, as well as documentary programmes, have lately occupied much of Christopher's time. In addition to BBC Television and BBC Radio, regional as well as national, ITV and other European broadcasters, he is a regular commentator with Canadian Television (CTV), the country's most watched national television news network, for whom since 2002 he has provided analysis and commentary for topical royal news stories and events, including the births and christenings of Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, as well as grander royal occasions that have included the celebration of The Queen's Golden and Diamond Jubilees, the weddings of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
After eight years in hardback, Christopher's highly-acclaimed, definitive biography, Ella: Princess, Saint & Martyr, which tells the remarkable story of Queen Victoria's granddaughter, Grand Duchess Elisabeth Feodorovna of Russia, was released in October 2014 in revised paperback and Kindle format as The Life and Death of ELLA Grand Duchess of Russia - A Romanov Tragedy. Soon to be re-issued, again in paperback and Kindle format, is a revised edition of Christopher's best-selling biography George and Marina: Duke and Duchess of Kent.
Following publication of Ella, Christopher accepted a private commission to write a history of the Throckmorton family of Coughton Court, Warwickshire. One House, One Family, One Faith (the title is the family motto), commemorated the 600th anniversary of the founding of a dynasty whose most famous sons were among the movers and shakers at the Courts of Henry VIII, Edward VI and Elizabeth I.
In addition to books, Christopher has written for the national press and has broad experience as a speaker, ghostwriter and film/television publicity writer.
