BBC Antiques Roadshow’s Fiona Bruce floored by medallion with royal connection inside

BBC Antiques Roadshow host Fiona Bruce was surprised by a locket with a secret royal connection inside.

Fans saw Fiona stunned to be presented with a locket containing the HAIR of Charles I.

“Not a lock, not a lock, but a small fragment of Charles I’s lock of hair,” explained the presenter.

She said: “It is accompanied by a letter which suggests it was passed from Charles I to his son Charles II.”

Fiona said: “Among all the ceramics, silverware and jewelry we see on the roadshow, we often see a lot of hair.

“We’ve had Nelson’s hair, Wellington’s hair and here we have what claims to be Charles I’s hair.”

She added: “It is impossible to verify whether it is indeed Charles I or not.

“But, I can only assume that if it’s his, it was taken out of his head before he met his grizzly end.”

“Otherwise instead of saying ‘Off with his head’ they would say ‘Off with his hair’,” joked Fiona, the BBC’s Question Time star and host of Antiques Roadshow.

Antiques Roadshow is now available on BBC iPlayer, with episodes also on the on-demand platform and a catch-up service once they’ve been aired and broadcast by the channel.
