Recommends it for: anyone interested in royal weddings and history connected to these weddings.
A fun read with lots of interesting facts connected to royal weddings throughout time concentrating on the more recent such as Queen Victoria and her family. Some grand quotations, traditions , and facts concerning many different royal weddings from the arranged ones to ones for love are found in this little book. The trivia is fabulous. This was a grand way to celebrate Prince Williams's engagement to Miss Kate Middleton better known today as the Duchess of Cambridge.

This tiny little book is simply chock full of all kinds of tidbits about European royals throughout the ages. If I was an author writing about this period, I would definitely have this sitting right by my dictionary and thesaurus. Anyone who loves this time period as I do, would enjoy reading this book. I highly recommend it.

Too many mistakes

I didn't get past the author telling us that Matilda the wife of William the Conqueror was the daughter of the king of france. if the author doesn't know that she was the daughter of the count o FlAnders then she has no business writing anything at all on historical figures

Fiona MacDonald's book was rather amusing and I found the little book to be worth reading mostly on account of it's cover, a rare thing for me.
