Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can I have my money back, please? I have to say that this book was an utter rubbish. What a waste of money!!! I have read innumerable books on history and especially, the British royal family, but Kelley's "The Royals" has to be the worst ever written - yet. First, it is enormous with little or no important information. Second, Ms. Kelley fails to distinguish trivial from important. Last but certainly not least, I have no idea where is she getting all this imformation from. I believe one of the reasons why she has written the book in such a style, with her tiresome prose is because this book was published in 1990s, when the royals were surrounded by endless scandals but now everything is calm and fine and the Windsors seem more settled than ever. But that's the point: Kelley does not comprehend British psychology and the affection the monarchy is held in Britain. Brits may scold the royals occasionally but only as if they were their own family members. And they think that the royal family "belongs" to them in someway or another. Poorly researched! Very poorly indeed! I know you must be thinking: what about gossip that Kelley is so famous (it that's the right word) for?. Well, I would recommend two books. They are gossipy and at the same time, they give an air of authority and aphorism.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different This book is one that is unique and different. It shows the "basic" lives of the Royals before the death of Diana. How Ever, the foul language in the book is far to content and should be cut down. Ms. Kelley's search on the book is truely amazing and I would like to congratulate her on that ! ( I just hope it's all is true )

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Royals Meow! Ms. Kitty sure does have her claws out for anyone sporting a crown. I found this book shocking and at times downright rude. Of course since the tragic death of Diana I fear this book will be snapped up eagerly. I don't recommend it at all, but if you must read it, be prepared for an unfaithful Prince Philip and a sex-starved Queen Elizabeth. After reading her pitiful book on Frank Sinatra I figured this book had to be better, but I was very wrong. Poor Ms. Kelley seems to be batting zero.

About the Author

Kitty Kelley attended the University of Arizona and the University of Washington. Kelley was a VIP hostess at the 1965 World's Fair, worked in Senator Eugene McCarthy's office in Washington, D.C. and was an editorial researcher at the Washington Post. Her claim to fame was Jackie Oh!, the tell-all biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Many other smut-filled scandalous biographies followed, including those of Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and Nancy Reagan. She also authored The Royals, which was published during the same time as the Princess Diana tragedy.

From Our Editors

After four years and hundreds of interviews Kitty Kelley -- the biographer who gave the world exposes of Frank Sinatra, Nancy Reagan and Jackie Onassis -- tells the stories about the hidden lives of The Royals. She uncovers such secrets as the ones concerning one queen’s parentage, another’s conception, several royal affairs and the reason behind the rocky relationship between Diana and the Queen Mum.
