How Monarchy made it into the Twenty-First Century

Peter Conradi

Description

In this riveting and extensively researched account, Peter Conradi – the celebrated author of The King’s Speech, on which the Oscar award-winning film of the same name was based – offers an uncompromising portrayal of Europe’s royals and reveals the scandals, excesses, conflicts and interests hidden behind the pomp of the ceremonial garb and the grandeur of official functions.

At a time when Western society appears to be demanding more equality and democracy, people’s fascination with monarchies shows no signs of waning. 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, The Royals of Britain and Europe analyses 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.
