Overview
From the coauthor of "The King's Speech" comes an uncompromising portrayal of Europe's royalsIn this riveting and extensively researched account of the royals, Peter Conradi the celebrated coauthor of "The" "King's Speech," on which the Academy Award winning film of the same name was based reveals the scandals, excesses, conflicts, and interests hidden behind the pomp of the ceremonial garb and the grandeur of official functions. Taking the reader on a journey between past and present into a world populated by great celebrities such as Wallis Simpson, Grace Kelly, and Princess Diana, as well as lesser-known and slightly murkier aristocratic figures, this book analyzes the reasons behind this anachronistic paradox by looking at the history of the main European dynasties and providing a keyhole glimpse into their world, their lives, and their secrets. At a time when Western society appears to be demanding more equalityanddemocracy, people'sfascinationwithmonarchies shows no signs of waning."
