Thank you for the great review. It does help to understand the dynamic in modern English politics & royal family's life.

Robert Bucholz

This is an excellent, probing summary of opinion from serious historians and people who knew Prince Charles. It is very clear that the writers of the Crown are not so much fabricating an alternative past as picking and choosing what to report so as to throw shade on the characters they disfavor. It is skillfully done, but Mr. Lucey's correspondents see through it.
