Stealing her Majesty's undergarments! ( )
  picardyrose | Oct 27, 2011 |
The 'Boy Jones'--a young lad whose fascination with the young Queen Victoria motivated his repeated infiltrations of Buckingham Palace--is mentioned in nearly all bios of the Queen, but his own story has not been told. Here it is, for the first time, documented and with insightful commentary by the author, and parallels to modern-day incidents stalking.

What is fascinating is that although the boy was apprehended 3 times, the exact number of other undetected infiltrations will perhaps never be known. The author communicates the great embarrassment to the government and palace officials when the boy was caught even after security had supposedly been improved.

Excellent story, and reads quickly. ( )
