Waterstones Says

From the death of Diana to the controversy surrounding Harry and Meghan, Tina Brown's engrossing volume recounts the manifold trials and tribulations of the royal family in the twenty-first century.

The riveting inside story of the British royal family since the death of Princess Diana, from the Queen's tightening grip to the defection of Harry and Meghan - by the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Diana Chronicles.

'Never again', became Queen Elizabeth II's mantra shortly after Diana's death. More specifically, there could never be 'another Diana' - a member of the family whose global popularity upstaged, outshone, and posed an existential threat to the British monarchy. Picking up where The Diana Chronicles left off, The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the traumatic years when Diana's blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet.

Tina Brown takes readers on a tour de force journey that shows the Queen's stoic resolve as she coped with the passing of Princess Margaret, the Queen Mother and her partner for seven decades, Prince Philip, and triumphed in her Jubilee years even as the family dramas raged around her. She explores Prince Charles's determination to make Camilla his queen, the tension between William and Harry who are on 'different paths', the ascendance of the resolute Kate Middleton, the disturbing allegations surrounding Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein, and Harry and Meghan's stunning decision to 'step back' as senior royals. Despite the fragile monarchy's best efforts, 'never again' seems fast approaching.

Full of powerful revelations, nuanced details, and searing insight, The Palace Papers will irrevocably change how the world perceives and understands the royal family.

“Very informative for someone not in the loop”

As a young woman in my 20s, this cleared up a lot of misunderstandings about the modern day royal family. It was very addictive as someone who is into general royal history but not-so-in-the-loop on all the modern... More
