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.
