Synopsis: A portrait of the royal Windsor family follows Queen Victoria through the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and covers the relationship of Charles and Camilla, Diana's emotional roller coasters, and the Duke of Kent's lovers. Reprint.

From Booklist: Spoto is a popular biographer of celebrities, mostly in the entertainment field, and it is the evolution of the Windsor family as celebrities that he chronicles here. He begins his detail-laden account in the previous century with Queen Victoria and her consort, Prince Albert; however, it's not until the reign of George V and Queen Mary (grandparents of the present queen) that we see royalty being made true celebrities by the increased media attention on the official and unofficial activities of the Windsor family members. In his march through Windsor history all the way up to the queen's divorce-prone progeny, Spoto not only puts a face to a name but a personality as well. Especially memorable are the portraits of Queen Mary, the twentieth-century's most outstanding example of what a straight-backed, regal personage should be; her son Edward VIII and the American divorcee he gave up the throne to marry; and the current Queen Mother, widow of the late George VI and darling grandmother to the entire nation (but it's her steely side we're most eager to read about here). The future of the monarchy is in doubt, as Spoto concludes that the "new generation of Windsors . . . seem incapable of living for anything but their own celebrity." A book that's bound to be popular. Brad Hooper
