Prince John - The Windsor's Tragic Secret

John Charles Francis of Wales was born in 1905 and was the youngest child of George, The Prince of Wales (future George V) and his wife, Mary. He was sixth-in-line to the throne upon birth but, from the age of four, the young prince suffered from epilepsy, and during WWI his seizures became more frequent. Seen in public less and less, his illness struck fear into his parents and siblings as well as revulsion. This dramatisation tells the full story of the young prince's tragic life, which ended after a severe seizure in 1918, aged 13.
