Very reader friendly and interesting., 2 May 2012
When I ordered this book, I must admit that I was worried I wouldn't be able to follow the contents as I'm not an avid Royal watcher. However, the author does a stunning job at putting all of her claims into context of the time they took place in and backs them up her reasons why she believes these claims to be true.
Of course parts are only gossip so should be taken with a pinch of salt, and I think these parts are pretty clear to the reader. However, it was fascinating to learn of the personality of the Queen Mother and the relationships she had with her friends and family, which I believe to be pretty factual.
Was a breath of fresh air to read a biography that is written from an objective point of view, and didn't just give the reader a glance at a life through rose tinted glasses (which many Queen Mother Bio's do).
Great, easy, fun read with some fab pictures added in.
