the debutants ball for coming of age girls curtseying before the queen...
A clear personal story of an English custom ( the debutants ball and the curtseying before the queen...and coming of age for girls...)and why it was held...and why ended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
How a whole way of everyday life for the upper class changed in the few short years of WW2.
The royal appearances and outings so routine today are more understandable ....
The court now seems far removed from how titled monarchy started ...the battles, wars over the throne to the seemingly serene situation today .
To know a country , you must know its background , warts and all.
It is rulers who start a war....citizens can only worry, speculate as to what their lives will become and get on with the business of living day by day ....this book shows you what they thought in those last weeks of peace...and what they already knew was happening in Germany.
