Well, if you want to know what Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother had for breakfast, lunch and dinner from the time she was a baby until she died at age 100, this is the book for you. While parts of it are admittedly interesting, there is just too much minutia about meals, the color of her clothing, etc. This is a really loooooong book, and I'd have liked it better if a lot of this stuff had been eliminated and it had been about half the length.
