Elizabeth & Margaret: The Intimate World of the Windsor Sisters by Andrew Morton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
‘Closest of sisters, best of friends.’
A queen living her life as one would expect of the monarchy, putting her country above herself and her family. A sister, self-centred and used to getting her her own way.
A queen demure and low key in her personal life, preferring the country estates for her leisure time. A sister who is a glamorous, party going city girl.
One lives her life by the rule book, the other breaks every rule in it.
A highly compelling account of contrasts in the British Royal family.
Best comment from Margaret agreeing with the stopping of the debutante season:
‘…good job, every tart in London was coming…’
