It is not a career that can be decided upon and it is not something that can be done in isolation from the outside world. People have always been interested in the lives of the royals, past and present, and how they each have coped with being in the most famous family in Britain.The entries in this collection of mini-biographies should be viewed within the historical context in which they were written.

For example, the Victorian editors of the DNB took great care to ensure that what was written about the subjects would adequately reflect the status of the monarchy at that time. This fact in itself says a lot about the era in which these particular entries came from.

Viewed as a whole this anthology gives an idea of just how much the role of the monarchy has changed from the days of George III to those of Elizabeth II.The authors of the entries arent all well known to the outside world, but more importantly they were well known to their subjects and it is this fact that provides for a fascinating and varied read.Entries include:John Grigg on Edward VIIIOwen Morshead on George VG.

K. S. Hamilton-Edwards on Marina, Duchess of KentTheo Aronson on Alice KeppelF. E. G. Ponsonby on Francis KnollysMichael Maclagan on Alan LascellesKenneth Rose on Lady Patricia RamsaySidney Lee on Queen VictoriaJohn Gore on Clive WigramPhilip Ziegler on Wallis Simpson
