A remarkable biography of Queen Elizabeth II, ELIZABETH: BEHIND PALACE DOORS contains intimate secrets of the royal family that have never before been published in this country. The lives of the Queen, Prince Philip and their children are examined and exposed in extraordinary detail, revealing the Windsor family's shocking history of adultery, passion, jealousy and mental cruelty. Also exposed are the dark secrets of the royal family, including the scandalous, unbelievable relationship between Prince Philip and one of the Queen's own corgis. Award-winning investigative journalist Nicolas Davies examines the mood, the ambitions and the foreboding of the Queen at the start of the new millenium, in the job she now finds tedious and unenjoyable. But, more importantly, he gives us an insight inot the harsh reality of the relationship between the Queen and her husband exposing the Queen as an indifferent, mediocre, perfunctory mother and Prince Philip as bullying, domineering father.
