Not in Front of the Corgis: Secrets of Life Behind the Royal Curtains by Brian Hoey (2011)

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The writing in this book reminded me of one of those old time, small town society columns in which the local grand dame - maybe the mayor's wife - writes about bridge clubs and garden clubs; the column always ended "and a good time was had by all" only about Buckingham Palace. The writing also reminded me of report fodder, if you were going to write a school report on the royal family, which is highly unlikely. I was not a fan. Yet for some reason, I kept reading (I will admit, I skimmed some). There were some delicious bits at the beginning and again at the end; but this was mostly the lintiest most dustybunniest kind of fluff.
