I like this author's style. She's a fast read, and has a talent for boiling down complex stories to their essential facts. I also have her bio of George VI. She is a friend of the royal family, as she portrays Princess Diana as a schemer who was out to get all she could from day one--the 'shy Di' image was a face she put on to show the world. Bradford is at great pains to defend Prince Charles at all times throughout the book. ( )
