A Brief History of the Private Life of Elizabeth II by Michael Paterson

"They crowded to look at her at every opportunity and, when she discovered they were disappointed not to see her wearing more jewellery, she obliged by putting on in public every stone she had available"

A quick and easy read which gives an arms length view into the life and times of Elizabeth II. 

Clearly she is a switched on woman with a particularly demanding career. The book highlights the great divide between her need to remain popular, while maintaining the distance and mystique that her office demands.

4 out of 5 royal waves must get exhausting
