The British Monarchy has weathered the storms of rebellion, revolution and war. Its unique survival owes much to the fact that, for all its ancient traditions, the royal family has proved remarkably responsive to change. In Crown and Sceptre, Tracy Borman looks back at the history and evolution of the British Monarchy from 1066 to the present day, drawing parallels between what came before and what our future monarchs might learn from these instances.
