Summary, etc.:
٢Never again٣ became Queen Elizabeth II's mantra shortly after Princess Diana's tragic death. More specif-ically, there could never be ٢another Diana٣-a mem-ber of the family whose global popularity upstaged, outshone, and posed an existential threat to the Brit-ish monarchy. Picking up where Tina Brown's masterful The Diana Chronicles left off, The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the trau-matic years when Diana's blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet. Brown takes readers on a tour de force journey through the scandals, love affairs, power plays, and betrayals that have buffeted the monarchy over the last twenty-five years. We see the Queen's stoic re-solve after the passing of Princess Margaret, the Queen Mother, and Prince Philip, her partner for seven decades, and how she triumphs in her Jubilee years even as family troubles rage around her. Brown explores Prince Charles's determination to make Camilla Parker Bowles his wife, the tension between William and Harry on ٢different paths,٣ the ascend-ance of Kate Middleton, the downfall of Prince An-drew, and Harry and Meghan's stunning decision to step back as senior royals. Despite the fragile monar-chy's best efforts, ٢never again٣ seems fast approaching. Tina Brown has been observing and chronicling the British monarchy for three decades, and her sweeping account is full of powerful revelations, newly reported details, and searing insight gleaned from remarkable access to royal insiders. Stylish, witty, and erudite, The Palace Papers will irrevoca-bly change how the world perceives and under-stands the royal family.
