Interest in the Royal Family, at home and overseas, is inexhaustable. Just take the amazing clamour over the recent wedding of William and Kate! But who are the Royals, and what do they get up to when we aren't watching them? In Not in Front of the Corgis, veteran Royal commentator and author of more than twenty books on the Royals, peeks behind the curtains to tell us what they really get up to in their spare time. Asking what the Queen watches on TV, why she does not have a driving license, and answering thousands of questions about the world's most famous family, including who are the most popular Royals to work for, and who the least? Who is the grandest of the Queen's children and why? Why Edward and Andrew pay less than Charles private secretary for the rent of their homes, and what records the Queen Mother liked to dance to. Not in Front of the Corgis is a unique and fascinating miscellany containing everything you ever wanted to know about the Royal Family, away from the spotlight.
