Book Description

5 Oct 2000

A remarkable biography of Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth: Behind Palace Doors, contains secrets of the royal family never previously published in this country. The lives of the Queen, Prince Philip and their children are examined and exposed in detail to reveal the Windsor family's disturbing history of adultery, jealousy and mental cruelty.

Award-winning journalist Nicholas Davies examines the mood, the ambitions and the forebodings of the Queen at the start of the new millennium. He gives us, too, an insight into the harsh reality of the relationship between the Queen and her husband.

Elizabeth: Behind Closed Doors also investigates the early years of Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward, covering their relationships with their parents and their own various love affairs, marriages, separations and divorces. The marriage of Charles and Diana is scrutinised to reveal the principle reason for their marital breakdown.

For more than a decade the supporting cast of royals stole the limelight as their marriages fell apart in acrimony; but now, with nearly 50 years on the throne and her children more settled, the Queen is returning to centre stage. This compelling book looks at Elizabeth II's plans for her own future as she wrestles with the uncertainty of what lies ahead for the House of Windsor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth 11: Behind Palace Doors 11 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because it was so interesting, and times it showed the Queen in a different way to what we all see her.
This book was one I could not put down, it held my attention.
A good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth:Behind Palace Doors 3 Mar 2003
An incredibly revealing publication, and a must-have for any die-hard fan of the British monarchy. The truth surrounding the "annus horribilis" and the breakdowns of the marriages of three of the Queen's children is revealed. As a result, one is made to feel genuine sympathy for the woman behind the public image. A very worthwhile read!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Tosh 5 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the opening paragraph it was blatantly obvious that the author had absolutely no idea of, or genuine perspective on his subject.
By what authority does he know the inner most thoughts of HM? Couldn't even finish the first chapter, though I skimmed through and attempted to read parts further along. Pure fiction. Pure tosh.
Dosn't even merit the one star (I hate it), this submission obliges me to give.

A dry and fairly predictable read. Pro monarchy with little balance of the main characters. Nevertheless a readable start to a tone new to this family
