"The [Queen's Diamond Jubilee] celebration is in June --plenty of time to swot up on your royal knowledge, and Smith's is a smart and satisfying book to do it with." - Patt Morrison 01/09/2012 "For her new venture into court life, Smith taps a host of public sources and tracks down friends and former courtiers of the queen who are willing to share more intimate tidbits (all too often about horses and corgis)." - Alan Riding 01/29/2012
