  • A window into the world of service

    Living a life devoted to service to a whole country is a simple idea, hugely breathtaking in the detail required to accomplish such a task. Others before her have found the sacrifice too great, but Elizabeth II has never publicly faltered. The support required to achieve what she has is a testament to the skills she has developed. Truly, the competence of an employer is reflected in the job their staff do. And our Queen, almost without exception, has a marvellous staff. They have moved with the winds of change, but as a body, their feet have been firmly planted in the over riding notion of service, service to their country through service to their employer, our Monarch. This book gives telling details of the highs and some of the unexpected moments to be found in such service to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth. Like the possible subliminal messages of a bright and cheery hat, the respect of culture, and over arching all of that, the utter respect for the institution, currently represented by our Queen, that has so uniquely developed through time to protect the rights and liberties of all those who follow the Westminster system. A system designed with a solid foundation to enable change. A system personified by both her Majesty and her Staff. Whilst you won’t find the book written in academic English, deep with intellectual debates, or a description of nuanced political ideals, you will find a fascinating every day representation of these concepts. Enjoy!

  • Disapppointment +++

    What a disappointment. This is no more than a once over lightly of the author's life. It could have been so much more: the fabrics; the notions; the care of thr jewellery, shoes, hats etc. None of that. If you've read about the book in the women's magazines you don't need to buy it !
