Buckingham Palace Life in WW2

Can anyone recommend memoirs - either by royals, their friends, or servants - which describe life in BP and Windsor Castle during the Second World War? I have Lascelles, Rhodes, and Corbitt among others.
Any suggestions most gratefully received.

Not quite what you’re asking for, but:

Princess Elizabeth’s Spy: A Maggie Hope Mystery
by Susan Elia Macneal

I’ve been reading this (slightly cheesy) pleasant series of Maggie Hope mysteries for several years now. This particular one is set in Windsor Castle, and it seems well-researched, with appealing details, and familiar (!) characters.

Well, thank you very much! Not quite what I was looking for, as you guessed, but I may give it a try. Most grateful!
