In another thread you mentioned the book as well. Is it worth reading? Should I get it? Or is it the same old, same old?
And should we move this to the book section? Questions upon questions.
BTW, you never sent the lemon chicken over. How about just the recipe? (with everybody home for corona since March, I am running out of ideas!)

I'm not DoV but I would say the book was worth reading. Tommy Lascelles' career spanned multiple monarchs and gave him a rather unique, erudite and sometimes amusing perspective into their personalities and foibles.

I've read quite a few biographies on the BRF- in fact I swore off them because they all seemed alike, but recently DoV recommended Robert Hardman's Queen of the World, which has been a refreshing change, IMHO. He's used material from Tommy Lascelles' diaries quite a bit thus far, particularly during about South African tour in 1947. I'd not seen a lot of it before.

Just my two cents but I'm putting the book on my library list.

Thanks. I'll keep an eye on it. I do love bios and have read many, so by now I kind of wonder if there is really is a reason to read yet another one...

Can you imagine what a read it would be uncensored! Still waiting for my copy. My Lady C book arrived and was immediately swallowed into the my husband's home office. It could be a decade. Or at least until he goes back to his office ofice!

For his 16th birthday, Edward officially became the Prince of Wales. In May 1910, his father ascended the throne as George V.     
King George V gave Edward the title of Prince of Wales a little over a month later.

Maybe this is more a topic for the ``what if'' section of Royal Dish, but today I found myself wondering what their kids might have looked like had the duke and duchess reproduced. You know how people make those photos of supposed offspring that are morphs of the two parents' photos. I'd love to see one made from Wallis and David. I doubt they would have won any prized, but maybe I am just being mean and bitchy about two people I didn't really respect or like . . . .
