Earl Spencer, who has a degree in History from Oxford, has written several very well-received books:

Althorp: the Story of an English House (1998)

The Spencers: a Personal History of an English Family (2000).

Blenheim, Battle for Europe (2004). This book was a Sunday Times best-seller, and was shortlisted for "History Book of the Year" at the 2005 National Book Awards.

Prince Rupert – The Last Cavalier
(2007).

Killers of the King: The Men Who Dared to Execute Charles I (2014). This book was a Sunday Times best-seller.

Earl Spencer is no slouch academically.

I looked through "Killer of the King" in a bookshop. I think Earl Spencer's writing style is dryly academic. Some people might find it tedious to read. His portrayal of Sir George Downing was quite vivid though: a diplomat and consummate survivor.
