I Recommend This Book

Yes

Learning the history of the Royals can be a daunting task and many writers make it all the more so with their dry styles. Not so with Theo Aronson.. His style is witty and engaging making the lesson enjoyable. He has wisely chosen a period of time beginning in the not so distant past with the death of Queen Victoria then working forward to Queen Elizabeth II's reign, a total of 80 years. Originally published in 1983, it stops shortly after Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William.

This was an interesting read and I highly recommend it to my fellow Anglophiles.

Thanks to the publisher, via Netgalley, for the opportunity to read and review this title.
