In this portrait of the end of aristocracy and patronage from an outsider's point
of view, Aronson shares how his life became interwoven with the Royal family and
hilariously describes lunching on a scotch egg - with Scotch - with Princess Margaret,
bizarre but gracious teas with the Queen Mother, and much more.
Theo Aronson is the author of over twenty works of royal historical biography, published
in eleven languages. Among the widely read are Grandmama of Europe, The King in Love,
Napoleon and Josephine and a biography of Princess Margaret. In the course of researching
and writing these books he has interviewed major and minor members of Britain’s royal
family and members of the royal households, as well as various officials, servants,
friends and others whose lives are in some way connected with the monarchy.
