books on royal family

I have begun reading biographies about the British Royal family. I read "Diana: Her True Story" by Andrew Morton, the authorized biography of the Queen Mother by Shawcross, another book on the Queen Mother, by Lady Colin Campbell, and I am almost done reading the authorized biography on King Edward VIII. There are two books I want to read on Queen Mary, the consort to King George V. I was reading some reviews on Amazon and one person said to definitely read the authorized biography by James Pope-Hennessey as well as "Matriarch: Queen Mary and the House of Windsor" in tandem. Is there an authorized biography on King George VI and maybe another good book about him? Also, what about books on George V? I seem to be working my way backwards. It is interesting to me to see the same events from the perspective of the different people involved. Also, is there a good book King George V's family? It would be interesting to read about all of them in one book and about their family life and how it affected their ultimate choices in addition to reading about them one at the time. Thanks.
