Much time was allowed for detailed descriptions of royal homes, but with no photographs or line drawings to accompany the text these were not exactly the highlights of the book. For me, the most valuable sections dealt with the attitude of the Royals for their servants -- an accident of birth alone makes one person the mistress or master and the other their social "inferior." While we Americans may have gone too far the other way, not being able to sit in the royal presence without permission is something with which I cannot identify. Is it any wonder that those of us who follow the Royals look for the human moments in their stories? I do not think it is an accident that the most popular members of the family (the Princess Royal and the late Princess Diana, to give just two examples)are the ones who seem more involved in "real life." In that regard, Hoey gives good thumbnail sketches of the more prominent members of the family. Having always had a secret admiration for Prince Phillip, I was glad to read that his staff is very loyal to him and that much of his reputation as a martinet is overblown. In most of the stories, dismissed staff members had overstepped their bounds by being too familiar, bounds of which they must have been aware when they were hired.Read more ›
