Very enlightening story of the life and times of the Royal Family in the twentieth century.
25 April 2015
Whilst much of the text is based on gossip and anonymous comments most of it rings true.
It is scandalous that such a man as William Tallon who so faithfully served the Queen Mother for fifty years, should have been treated so shabbily by the rest of the Royal Family after the Queen Mother died in 2001.
Although spoken of highly by William it would seem that Prince Charles did nothing to ensure that William could live out the few remaining years of his life at the Gate House at Clarence House where Charles and Camilla now reside.
It is surprising to learn that palace back stairs life provided a gay heaven for male staff attracted to the better, albeit very restricted, living conditions that they had in their previous private lives.
If all here is to be believed it's perhaps time for a Republic? How can 'Royals' represent a people that they clearly cannot understand? Hopefully William and Harry with their less cloistered upbringing will be improvements on their predecessors in this regard. Prince Charles does well but in the interests of common sense should perhaps give up many of his perks?
