English Phrases For An Investigative Story ✔Lesson transcript:

Today  we look into the world of the British monarchy. We talk about lords,  earls and princes involved in a recent story of lies and scandal from  one of the most respected journalistic organisation in the UK and by far  one of the most popular royal members Diana, Princess of Wales.

Today we use a lot of English phrases and vocabulary that you might associate with detective and  investigative stories. We use idioms like “come to light” as we explore a  recent scandal involving the BBC and the British royal family. A scandal is the term used for an event that people typically see as morally wrong.

Although this scandal has taken 26 years to be uncovered (spot the prefix from last weeks lesson?), it is still making the headlines in newspapers because it involves some of the largest and most trusted institutions in the UK.

I’d like to be a queen in people’s hearts but I don’t see myself being queen of this country.
