My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As a child who grew up in one of the British commonwealth nations I have always found the pomp and circumstance of the monarchy fascinating. I enjoyed this book and really enjoyed learning more about the inner workings of the royal family.
There were times when I found the people in the book difficult to follow - all the different Dukes & Earls, etc could be quite confusing. Also, the politics of the many prime ministers was sometimes very distracting.
The book was decidedly pro-queen. It felt as though sometimes the author went out of her way to convince us that the queen was a nice person. This made some of the accounts seem to not ring true. The author was also very unfavorable in her descriptions of Diana while down playing some of the bad behavior of the other spouses. Charles' role in the demise of the marriage was significantly down played.
Loved the pictures throughout the book which helped to bring alive some of the stories.
Overall, an interesting read.
