Since then, the fine line trodden by the House of Windsor between ancient and modern, grandeur and thrift, splendour and informality, remoteness and accessibility, and influence and neutrality has left it more secure and its appeal more universal today than ever.

I needed a break from the book I am currently reading so when I came across this one I thought it would fit the bill nicely: short, informative and entertaining. It was perfect for me; detailed enough to be interesting throughout, but not too heavy on politics, dates, treaties, and wars.
I’m a Royalphile and I’ve read many bios on the Royal Family, but so far none about Queen Mary and George V so I especially enjoyed the section that covered their reign. As for the rest of the group, although I can’t say I learned anything new, I was engaged all the way through since I am naturally so drawn to the topic.
