“Andrew Duncan had the unique opportunity to follow the Queen to nearly all her public and semi-public engagements, a trail 50,000 miles long that took him to South America, Austria, and Norway, as well as many parts of England, Wales, and Scotland.  He visited Buckingham Palace for garden parties and meetings, Windsor Castle to see preparations for a State Banquet, Sandringham Estate for church, Holyrood house for an investiture, and Balmoral to watch the holidaymakers watching the Queen.  He spoke – with varying degrees of intimacy – to eleven members of the royal family, some of whose comments are recorded in here for the first time.  Monarchy itself is analysed objectively and in depth: the cost, the purpose, the organisation, the relationship to Church and Parliament, the public image and, most importantly, the future.”
