Editorial Reviews

Review

"Theo Aronson's latest royal book is a model of what a royal biography should be... The problems of being a princess in today's monarchy are vividly implicit in every page... I found the book eminently readable in an easy style that lends itself to wit and irony..."
Elizabeth Longford, The Tablet

"A balanced and on the whole generous interpretation of this most elusive of royal characters. Aronson expounds convincingly the almost intolerable pressures to which a woman of intelligence and character must find herself subjected when entrapped in the mesh of royal responsibilities."
PHILIP ZIEGLER, Daily Telegraph 'Books of the Year' 

"Theo Aronson is a practised royal biographer who writes with fluidity... It is good to find royal gossip in which no one is absurdly inflated and no one viciously demeaned."
Times Literary Supplement

"Aronson's strength is his style: he is an elegant writer who can handle the broad picture and the telling detail."
Daily Telegraph

“Very comprehensive and well researched. An interesting read.”
Mary’s Book Corner

“Well written and kept me reading from cover to cover. A very good overview of her life.”
Flora Fung - Librarian

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is well researched… the author manages to bring her alive… you have a real sense of her attitude, her privilege and her sadness. Excellent book.”
ANN APPLIN - Reviewer

“This is the most detailed biography of the life of Princess Margaret that I have had the pleasure of reading. The detail is astonishing… wonderfully written. I found it hard to put down.”
T B – Reviewer

“A detailed and enjoyable book.”
Jessica Nipper – Reviewer

“In reality for Princess Margaret being royal, living in a palace, being a Princess was often a nightmare. She handled this role as well as she could with the undeniable ability to be her own person with not a care as to who liked it or not. In the end Margaret paved the way for divorce in the royal family and some think that was her legacy.”

Marialyce Weinreich - reviewer
