In this sharp, funny and evocative memoir, Major Colin Burgess draws on his years as the Queen Mother's right-hand man to recount numerous previously untold stories of an extraordinarily long and eventful life. From dancing with Fred Astaire to living through the Blitz; from the time Princess Margaret caught fire at a dinner party to when Prince Charles sought solace in his grandmother as his marriage collapsed, each anecdote and observation provides an historic insight into one of our longest-surviving institutions.
Constantly fascinating and packed from start to finish with previously untold stories that lift the lid on the idiosyncrasies of royal protocol, this is also a celebration of a life gone - and a way of life fast disappearing.
