Description

Over the last century Britain has witnessed a royal family saga compelling, tumultuous and heartwarming. The constitution has been thrown into crisis by an abdication, royal divorces have become commonplace, coronations and jubilees have brought the nation together - and though Princess Diana's death precipitated perhaps the most serious turn in public opinion yet, the Windsors' place in our hearts was confirmed beyond any doubt by Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee and the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son, Prince George. With full-page illustrations from the Daily Mirror's archives and illuminating explanatory text, this book is a unique look at one hundred years of royalty in Britain. The British Royal Family: beloved worldwide, poised and gracious, and above all resilient. With striking images from the Daily Mirror's famous archive and expert text from Ed West, A Century of Royalty looks from unexpected angles at these fascinating lives, controversies and traditions, from Edward VII's coronation to the birth of Prince George in 2013.show more
