I Recommend This Book


This followed the Royal Family from the death of Queen Victoria to the birth of the current Prince William. It was well written and well researched, and it was interesting to see Aronson’s point that the royal family has become a “family firm” by the time of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. 

I wish it had been more up to date, because it would have been interesting to see Aronson’s take on the Queen Elizabeth / Lady Diana feud, which meant that the royal family took a hit in public opinion. This would have been especially interesting because Aronson focused on public approval of the royals, and it was especially interesting to look at the lesser known royalty, such as the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Kent and Windsor.

This was well worth a read if you’re interested in the Royal Family.
