Don`t mention the Germans....
on 19 November 2017
Well researched and eminently readable account of the Windsor family next door. A touch of salaciousness but mainly objectively written, this book confirms that our ruling family have had their ups and downs and the skeletons in the gilded wardrobes do rattle sometimes gently and sometimes with considerable force. Some of the history has been documented elsewhere, but some is discussed for the first time.
The authors do write with a matter of fact style that avoids the obsequiousness of other royal books and there are some moments of real insight.
