Abstract:

"Royals expert Nicholas Davies - the author of the Birch Lane Press bestseller Diana: A Princess and Her Troubled Marriage - reveals for the first time the intimate secrets of Queen Elizabeth's forty year reign. Filled with never-before-published revelations, Queen Elizabeth II: A Woman Who Is Not Amused is a story of adultery, passion, jealousy, and mental cruelty, as lived by the Royal Family in Buckingham Palace." "Readers will learn about Elizabeth's extraordinary reaction after being crowned Queen. A dramatic change came over her: convinced that she had to sacrifice herself for her people, she banned Philip from the marital bed for several years, committing herself then to a lifelong marriage to the throne." "The book also unveils the extraordinary amoral life of the Queen's husband, Prince Philip, detailing his many adulterous affairs. The darkest secret of Britain's royal family is revealed: the long, passionate love affair between Philip and Princess Alexandria, Elizabeth's own younger cousin, an affair that broke Elizabeth's heart. It tells, too, of Elizabeth's one extramarital romance with a courtier she came to love, and the warning she was given to end the affair." "In addition, Queen Elizabeth II describes the breakdown of the marriages of Charles and Diana, and Andrew and Fergie, as never before. It reveals that Elizabeth and Philip fought to hold together Charles and Di's marriage and details the extraordinary lengths to which senior palace courtiers went to get rid of the "wretched" Fergie because she wasn't "royal enough" ... and the punishment the palace has decreed on Diana for walking out on Charles."

"The lifestyle Elizabeth enjoys as the greatest living monarch in the western world is also examined. Hers is a life of absolute luxury, spent in palaces and castles, surrounded by advisers, servants, maids, footmen, and ladies-in-waiting. And in the midst of all this untold wealth, Elizabeth behaves like a miser. Her likes and dislikes are explored, as well as her passion for her dogs, her love of country life, solitude, and long holidays." "No other book has focused to such a degree on Queen Elizabeth's life, inside and outside the palace."--Jacket.
