Product description


Anne Somerset's gossipy Ladies in Waiting provides a wealth of juicy anecdotal material about five centuries of court life from Henry VIII to Elizabeth II (NEW YORK TIMES)

Extraordinarily enjoyable ... Colourful and entertaining ... A Naughty Knickers version of our island story (Auberon Waugh DAILY MAIL)

A pleasing account of the upper-class ladies who slaved, suffered and starved in royal service (SUNDAY TIMES)

An extremely informative and well-documented study that ... because it is full of odd episodes and graphic portraits, will make admirable bedside reading (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Lady Anne writes with perception, wit, candour and a confident authority (Hugh Montgomery Massingberd THE SPECTATOR)

From four centuries of courtly life and love, Anne Somerset has compiled a sparkling history, lucidly written and of impeccable scholarship (COUNTRY LIFE)
