I recently read The Royals by Kitty Kelley. Ms. Kelley is famous for her unauthorized biographies. The accuracy of her portraits of famous people have been often questioned, but I would rather read a well documented unauthorized biography than one written by a family friend or political sycophant. There was a negative reaction to the publishing of this book (1997) but it does show the royal family as human beings with all the faults of character and misbehavior that is true of most ordinary families. From the German roots of the Windsor family to the neurotic antics of the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of York, it is an interesting read.
