The pictures in this book are all of good quality, and some are not commonly seen on books on English royalty. Each photograph has a little story attched giving you some information on the person in the picture and something about what path their life took. There is some intersting information and suprises in these little stories.
The photos are divided into both private and public, so you get a mixture of family photos and some of royalty dressed to the hilt in jewels to die for.
An interesting, but slightly dissapointing book, as I would have loved to see more 19th century photos and maybe a greater range of formal pictures.
