Review of Courtiers: Intrigue, Ambition, and the Power Players Behind the House of Windsor

This is a different type of book on the British Royal family than the one currently on the best seller lists. This book deals with the people that work inside the palaces and the power they hold. ‘The Institution’ wields an enormous amount of influence over the royal family and this book details the inner workings. The mad scrambles from the courtiers to outdo each other and stay in prominent and relevant roles are detailed in this book. This was a fascinating look at the inner workings of the employees of the family and it is obviously very timely.
