Newly updated in the wake of the death of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, What a Thing to Say to the Queen is a slim, gift-format anthology of amusing anecdotes, quotes and vignette snapshots of encounters and situations.

Organised in loosely-themed chapters, among them No Airs and Graces, Our Feminine Allure, Married Life, and Our Realms and Interests Over the Sea, quotes from other members of the royal family are also included, from the late Queen Mother and the Duke of Edinburgh, to Princess Margaret.

We also learn how Princess Diana’s tap-dancing lessons are said to have ruined the parquet floor of the palace’s Music Room, the high-jinks jokes the Duke played on his wife, and that the Queen’s favourite meal of the day was afternoon tea —fascinating fodder for royalists.
