"Pages that genuinely illuminate the careers of the flawed humans who have occupied and circled the throne this century. Never before have all the stories about all the bit players, from Prince Philip to Princess Margaret, from the Queen Mother to the grimly devoted old courtiers, been collected in a single, useful place."-Washington Post Book World
"Salacious...irreverent...juicy details...the product of four years' research...Regarded as the most sensational of her scandal-packed oeuvre...Gripping." - Chicago Sun Times
"Miss Kelley is a fine writer and indefatigable researcher...She has lost none of her edge here in The Royals...A delightful read...As early as the second page, Miss Kelley is referring to the royal family's 'secrets of alcoholism, drug addiction, insanity, homosexuality, bisexuality, adultery, infidelity and illegitimacy' in this century. None of this is exaggerated, none of it is false." - Washington Times
"Kelley's pen is mightier than the sword." - Houston Voice
"The larger, hotter rumors are as interesting for the way they are presented and justified as for what they contain." - The New Yorker
