too many errors.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mystery of Princess Louise: Queen Victoria's Rebellious Daughter (Kindle Edition)
Although this book gives extra insights into the Princess than hitherto, the number of errors result in the reader losing confidence in the writer. For example, Prince Philip is NOT the great grandson of the Tsarina, his grandmother was her sister. Also, Prince Arthur was married to Louise, NOT Marie; Princess Alice of Athlone was the daughter of Prince Leopold, not Helena and was it the "duke" or "earl" of Somerset involved in the Cleveland Street Scandal ? There are many typographical errors - what happened in the editing. ?
Sorry, but it is not good scholarship. I would like to have learned more about the Princess's reproductive (alleged) makeup, as this could be the key to much of her behaviour and experience. On the plus side, Louise's character does come out.

In all fairness to the author, I bought this book in hardback and also found these errors in the text. I have since been sent a copy of the paperback edition for review, and they appear to have been corrected.
