One could argue that none of the princesses are famous for their achievement, but rather by virtue of being born into royalty or marrying into it. This is specifically true of Charlotte, whose grandmother is the embodiment of this “fairytale”. I agree. The title of this book is peculiar.

I think that perhaps what the title might mean is these women are princesses, and have turned that into their career.

I found a listing for the book on the Windsor Castle website and was upset I couldn't order it from the US online. I picked up a copy while I was at Windsor Castle in June and have not regretted it! The exhibit was lovely and I just wish I could have gone to the display at Buckingham Palace as well with QEII's dress (wasn't on display yet). My luggage was just about all books on the way home, threw out the toiletries to make more space. I should have just taken another empty suitcase to begin with for more take-home goodies.

Just order it from the royal collection website. You won't find it on the US shop, but it is on the UK and the rest of the world shop. I have ordered from the UK site many many times (i.e. Christmas and birthday gifts). It might take just a little longer for shipping across the pond (plus additional postage), but I have never had a problem.. Which reminds me, time to start shopping for Christmas.

Crown & Country.

I started to watch this program on the History channel on Foxtel. Very interesting program, lots of things I didn't know about the country of great britain.

Crown & Country

I've heard about this. I would really like to see a clip or two to see examples of what it represents. I get very basic cable, so I never see anything new--I have to hear it by word of mouth on these forums or other royal websites. Thanks for the remind!

Royal Cookbooks

Has anybody ever made any of the recipes from a "royal" cookbook?

I have:
Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen by Darren McGrady and Royal Cookbook: FAvorite Court Recipes from the World's Royal Families (Parents' Magazine Press, copyright 1971), but I've never tried any of the recipes.

I do.

I bought it at, of all places, the Carolina Herrera boutique at South Coast Plaza a while ago. Royal Holidays is basically a fluff photo book with interesting commentary. Overall, I highly recommend it if you happen to see it at your local book shop.

Yes I have bought this book & can recommend it because it has a slightly unusual focus. The Royals featured are Soraya, Empress of Iran, Astrid Queen of the Belguims,Isabelle Comtesse de Paris, Marie Queen of Romania,Christian IX King of Denmark, Elisabeth Empress of Austria, Wilhelm II Kaiser of Germany, Victoria Queen of Great Britain,Nicholas II Tsar of Russia & Grace Princess of Monaco. As usual with Assouline books there's plenty of lovely photos but there's a reasonable amount of text documenting the favourite holiday destinations of these Royals.

Review of princess book...

"The tale of Elena is a superb what-if that circles around the fractured fairy tale of royal life. Each chapter begins with a few lines of dialogue from mysterious persons that point fingers this way and that way in regards to who is out to get Elena. It is a clever little trap that Ms. Froetschel has laid to entice the reader to keep going to see what happens even when the reader’s body is begging for a few hours of rest. The printed words on the pages of this book have all the lure of a siren’s song, and I for one fell in love with them. Reading Royal Escape was like spending time with a dear old friend; I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to rough up quite a few fictitious jerks. If I have not made it clear; this story is wonderful."

Money from the book will go to charity.

Very well thought-out idea. Especially books to be used for income benefit charities. This book is one I want to receive.This type of future events and activities for members of the Royal example will be.
