Lives of the Princesses of Wales
Beautifully illustrated, this book looks at the nine women who have been Princesses of Wales. From Joan, the "Fair Maid of Kent," through the tragic Katharine of Aragon, Henry’s VIII’s first wife, and the tempestuous Caroline of Brunswick, the mistreated wife of George IV, to the present fairy-tale, headline-catching Princess, their stories are told with insight and compassion.
The perfect book for those who love royalty...the authors Mary Beacock Fryer, Arthur Bousfield, and Garry Toffoli bring the nine lives of the Princesses of Wales to life.
