If you're looking for salacious gossip about the Royal family, there are a few titbits that you might find funny or interesting but not enough and not much that the average Brit hasn't heard before if they're interested in The Firm. If you've watched The Queen, you're not getting much more here about the different personalities of the senior members. The rest is mostly mundane details like what alcohol each prefers and where they get their suits made. Spoiler Alert - no-one liked Diana.
Most of this book is devoted to how the royal residences are run (who does what, what they get paid, how they get promoted, where all the money goes.... zzzzz) and then there's some info on how each are the royals are perceived by the staff.
This was an easy read but it was a bit of fluff that quickly turned boring. I don't know what I was expecting but I wasn't satisfied. I gave it a go and maybe you should too if you want a tiny bit of juice and know next to nothing about the family and have £4 quid to spare. Send it back if you don't like it (free on kindle).
All in all, I wouldn't recommend it though.
They come over as petty and narrow minded. After reading the book I can understand why people believe they have had their day.
