The book on Catherine Willoughby is very interesting (though for me, who's studied her a bit, nothing much new). She had a fascinating life! I encourage everyone to check it out. I wish they put in more of her funny letters and commentary about other people at court. I read some of them in college and I found her insults laugh out loud funny.

I'm curious about the book (17 Carnations), would you recommend it?

Well, Morton certainly maks a persuasive case that W and E were passing information to Von Ribbentrop, et al. The 17 carnations is from Von Ribbentrops constant, identical flowers sent to Wallis...supposedly to honor the 17 times they had spent the night.

But he is no George rr Martin!

17 Carnations was good, well researched, but I liked Queen Victoria's Granddaughters better.

Quote
Princess Margaret? Arrogant and capricious. Edward? Dull. Charles? Turning into a cyclops. In majestically mischievous diaries, SIR ROY STRONG takes a rapier to his royal encounters
By SIR ROY STRONG FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
PUBLISHED: 16:02 EST, 15 October 2016 | UPDATED: 17:51 EST, 15 October 2016

For nearly 50 years Sir Roy Strong, the waspish art historian, landscape gardener and director of London?s Victoria and Albert Museum from 1973 to 1987, has been at the heart of the Establishment, a regular at State occasions and a favourite guest of the great and the good. Now he has finally released his diaries - which include witty, irreverent and sometimes excoriating views on the House of Windsor, and a beautiful Princess destroyed by ?50 years of fags and whisky??
