Book description
From the end of the 18th century the consensus was that the best nannies in the world came from England (meaning also Scotland, Ireland and Wales; few foreigners understood the distinction.) In some countries it holds to this day. From Scandinavia to the Balkans, Portugal to the Far East, the wealthiest and most fashionable families cried out for English nannies and governesses for their children and nowhere was this more true than in the Courts and homes of royalty. "From Cradle to Crown" draws on the individual experiences of over 120 British women who worked for royalty from the 1770s to the 1950s. Told wherever possible in their own words using unpublished letters and diaries, household records and rare published memoirs, their stories give a unique insight into private, family life as it was lived inside royal palaces (source: Andrew Lownie Literary Agency).
