Does Lucy Worsley have children?

Lucy and Mark do not have children. Speaking to The Times back in 2018, Lucy opened up about her decision not to have kids. "I don't want it to be the thing that defines me, and I don't think it should be the thing that defines me, and I don't think other people should be interested," she told the publication.

"Obviously, I have talked about it in the past, so I can't say I'm not going to talk about it anymore, but I was naive. I didn't realise what I was getting into."

What has Lucy Worsley said about her marriage?

Lucy prefers to keep her marriage out of the spotlight and rarely comments on her relationship with Mark. However, after reports circulated that her husband insisted she sign a prenuptial agreement so she wouldn't take part in Strictly Come Dancing, Lucy responded to the claims.

The presenter told the Times: "That's totally true. He thinks I get enough attention already. Also, they're always running off with their dancing partners, aren't they?"
