Description

 Signed copies come with attached National Archives bookplate signed by the author and unique National Archives cover ribbon.

Marion Crawford, affectionately known as Crawfie, stood by the side of the royal family through it all. In 1933, a progressive young teacher became governess to the little Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.

Determined to give her pupils a fun and normal childhood, she took them on buses, swimming at public baths and Christmas shopping at Woolworths. For seventeen years she served at the heart of the royal family. But her devotion and loyalty counted for nothing when a perceived betrayal brought everything crashing down.

This sweeping, sumptuous novel brings her long-buried story to life and shines a completely new and captivating light into the world's most famous family. Compelling characters and a wonderful blend of historical accuracy and real narrative drive . .
