Where to buy it


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.
