The dust jacket reads: Britain's Royal Family in the Twentieth Century recounts the fascinating lives and times of the most celebrated and popular family of the realm. Beginning with Edward VII, symbol of the golden "Edwardian Age" The return of the century brought the reign of the free-spending, pleasure-loving Edward VII and that exemplary royal mother Queen Alexandra. Tells the stories of each royal household and its individual style of monarchy. There followed the brief but dramatic reign of his eldest son, the charismatic Edward VIII, who evoked loyalty and devotion almost unprecedented in a prince or monarch. The trauma of abdication was alleviated by the accession of George VI, who with Queen Elizabeth became the affectionately regarded royal couple whose War Mission during the upheaval and strife of the Second World War made them a symbol of the nation's unity in war.
