This is an ok read but nothing special. It's title implies that it has information about the 'behind the scenes' life of the Queen but this is not the case.

The book goes through her reign in a chronological order. Unlike other books it does not look at the world events during her reign but more of the 'tabloid headline' type events. It's focus appears to be the breakdown of the marriages of her sister and children.

I am glad I read this but would not read it again.
