From the Publisher:
A full-scale, intimate biography presents a candid look at the members of the British royal family, focusing on the years following the death of Princess Diana to the present day. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
The House of Windsor: Is it a hangover from the past, an expensive anachronism, a relic of a bygone age of deference and hierarchy, or is it as important and relevant as ever?
However you look at it, the royal family is a big business, though one with more ups and downs than the stock market. Prince Philip calls it “The Firm,” and all the royal executives and their powerful associates are supposed to make every effort to avoid even a hint of scandal that could diminish the reputation of the family business.
Unfortunately for the royals, for the past twenty years scandal and controversy have deluged the Queen’s family, putting everything at risk. Focusing primarily on the years after the death of Princess Diana and including the heir to the throne’s marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles and Prince William’s latest romance, acclaimed royal writer Penny Junor looks in depth at how the royal family has made itself the world’s soap opera. The Firm reveals the answers to the questions that absorb the media around the world, disclosing how the family really behaves behind closed doors in this controversial and terri?cally readable book.
