Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0330480529, Paperback)A touching and funny memoir of how one man's life became interwoven with the Royal family, seeing them with their guard down as we never do. Theo Aronson first met the Queen Mother as a boy in South Africa when she and George VI stopped on their Empire tour at a local railway station for a meet and greet. Fast forward three decades and he is appointed official biographer to the ageing Princess Alice, who grew up in the court of Queen Victoria; through this and his later books he has at-home interviews with the Queen Mum, Princess Margaret, Charles et al. While also a reflection on royalty and writing, the gems you'll discover along the way are hilarious descriptions of lunching on a scotch egg (and Scotch) with Margaret, bizarrely gracious teas with the Queen Mother, tales of the ageing aunts in Kensington Palace and much more. "A jewel of a book." - "Sunday Times". "Compelling and funny ...I was riveted" - "Sunday Telegraph".
