While I had a foggy notion of the ins and outs of the House of Windsor during the last century this book was able to clarify who was who. Very interesting after having watched The King's Speech as background.

Some interesting facts about the Royal Family and explanation as to how the constitutional monarchy works and has changed in the last century. This book was written in the late 70's so there are things that are not discussed (such as Margaret Thatcher's time as PM or princess Diana). There is talk about how the Monarchy has changed over the last century and how Britain's expectations have changed for their monarch.

Overall a good and educational read. ( )
