Summary, etc.:
"Never again" became Queen Elizabeth II's mantra shortly after Princess Diana's tragic death. More specifƯically, there could never be "another Diana"--a memƯber of the family whose global popularity upstaged, outshone, and posed an existential threat to the BritƯish monarchy. Brown takes readers on a tour de force journey through the scandals, love affairs, power plays, and betrayals that have buffeted the monarchy over the last twenty-five years. We see the Queen's stoic reƯsolve after the passing of Princess Margaret, the Queen Mother, and Prince Philip, her partner for seven decades, and how she triumphs in her Jubilee years even as family troubles rage around her. Brown explores Prince Charles's determination to make Camilla Parker Bowles his wife, the tension between William and Harry on "different paths," the ascendƯance of Kate Middleton, the downfall of Prince AnƯdrew, and Harry and Meghan's stunning decision to step back as senior royals. Despite the fragile monarƯchy's best efforts, "never again" seems fast approaching. Picking up where Tina Brown's masterful The Diana Chronicles left off, The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the trauƯmatic years when Diana's blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet.
