Victoria, May Blossom of Britannia
I had to kiss His Majesty's hand. Really, one kisses the air over his hand, and that's a good thing, for he's so glistening with lotions and powders to cover the liver spots on his skin, which he hates ... Aunt Soap says he was a beautiful lad when he was young. "Prinny was the handsomest Prince ever. His curls were the colour of honey on toast, like that red-gold Russian sable the Princess de Lieven wears." Now, unfortunately, his beauty has quite fled. Perhaps he does wear a corset, as I once heard Lady C. remark - though I can't see that it does much good. I'm sure she would be shocked to know I overheard. But I do wonder why so many people seem to think a young person's ears do not work unless they are instructed to by some adult.

Not my favorite book in the series thus far, but still really well written and I still learned loads. This was really informative and I think it's perfect for the age it's meant for. Very well written, easy to follow and connect with the characters. 4 out of 5 stars. Read full review
