If you have ever wanted to know more about the fascinating history of Britain's Royal Family, then look no further: The Book of Royal Useless Information is jam-packed with surprising, shocking and hilarious facts. DID YOU KNOW? King Richard the Lionheart was gay. Charles I liked to place his 18-inch court dwarf between half-loaves of bread and pretend to eat him. Elizabeth I said she bathed once every three months whether she needed it or not. Henry VII was the last English king to win his throne on the field of battle. The Queen uses black blotting paper so people can't see what she's written. Wallis Simpson admonished her lover, Edward VIII, with the joke: 'You can't abdicate and eat it.' Bestselling authors Noel Botham and Bruce Montague irreverently present everything you could ever possibly want to know about the Royals - and a little bit more! So raise the Union Flag, feed the corgis, make yourself a nice cup of tea, and enjoy this truly mind-boggling collection of totally useless information.
