Good To Read About The Queen & How She Came To Be
I learned a lot (probably more than I had bargained for) about the history and lineage of Great Britain’s Royal Family. I was amazed to learn about the family tree which traces back hundreds of years to the Russian Czars and German Royalty and also to the many indiscretions throughout the years involving just about everyone.
Good reading and with the ‘Ol Queen getting up there in age now, it’s good to be able to read about a lot of the historical events that she has personally witnessed.
