'One of Gregory's great strengths as a novelist is her ability to take familiar historical figures and flesh them into living breathing human beings. The Constant Princess is a worthy successor to her previous novels about the Tudors' Daily Express'Gregory's research is impeccable which makes her imaginative fiction all the more convincing' Daily Mail'Gregory is great at conjuring a Tudor film-set of gorgeous gowns and golden-lattered dining. She invokes some swoonsome images.while the politics are personal enough to remain pertinent' DailyTelegraph
