This is another dance around the issue of British monarchy. Instead of spelling out the subject material it obfuscates it to the point that you might think that you already know all this, but in so doing you are blown away from the central issue of what the monarchy really is. It isn't the Queen, its the institution - the corporation sole that she represents. - but you won't find the hard facts in this book. I give it three stars because it represents the official obfuscated view that its 'subjects' should know.
