Comments

With fascinating new evidence, this book provides the most complete portait yet of the House of Windsor. From the time of George V to the 'annus horribilis' of Queen Elizabeth II, Brendon and Whitehead give behind-the-scenes insight on:

• the christening of the dynasty
• the relationship between the Windsors and the Nazis
• the 'organised silence' surrounding the affair between Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson
• the doomed romance of Princess Margaret and Group-Captain Townsend
• the choice of Lady Diana Spencer as a royal bride
• the rival queens — Elizabeth II and Margaret Thatcher
• the fending courts of Prince Charles and Princess Diana

Compelling and authoritative, this is the first in-depth account of the world's most famous dynasty in the light of recet scandals.
