Post Lord Snowdon by Helen Cathcart

I've had this little hardback on my bookshelves for years and somehow I'm just getting around to reading it. It's funny because this particular gem was published by W.H. Allen in 1968. I read Anne de Courcy's much more recent "semi-authorized" biography of him (it would have been authorized, but he wasn't given copy approval.) Anne's book is on my kindle and I love it. She has so many delightful anecdotes about this colorful man. Well, I've been thinking about him again, because of his death this year, yada yada. So I was cleaning today and I came across Helen Cathcart's old book from the 1960s and I thought, what I great way to commence the royal books blog I've always wanted to do. I've made a post introducing this book and in the coming days I will dive into it, chapter by chapter, giving you my thoughts about it, my questions, my wonderings, and just... well, my "take" on things. My hope is that by giving you my take, you will give me yours likewise! :big grin:

Cathcart's book is very interesting. It's short and was written in the 60s, when there was so much going on that people did not know about. I like how you break things down on your blog. I'm eager to see how you break down the rest of the book. I'm also looking forward to see how The Crown on Netflix portrays Margaret and Snowdon.
