The Palace Papers by Tina Brown Book Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The “addictively readable” (The Washington Post) inside story of the British royal family’s battle to overcome the dramas of the Diana years—only to confront new, twenty-first-century crises
“The beach read of the summer . . . juicy, satisfying entertainment.”—Town & Country
“Never again” became Queen Elizabeth II’s mantra shortly after Princess Diana’s tragic death. More specifically, there could never be “another Diana”—a member of the family whose global popularity upstaged, outshone, and posed an existential threat to the British monarchy.
Picking up where Tina Brown’s masterful The Diana Chronicles left off, The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the traumatic years when Diana’s blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet.
Brown takes readers on a tour de force journey through the scandals, love affairs, power plays, and betrayals that have buffeted the monarchy over the last twenty-five years. We see the Queen’s stoic resolve after the passing of Princess Margaret, the Queen Mother, and Prince Philip, her partner for seven decades, and how she triumphs in her Jubilee years even as family troubles rage around her. Brown explores Prince Charles’s determination to make Camilla Parker Bowles his wife, the tension between William and Harry on “different paths,” the ascendance of Kate Middleton, the downfall of Prince Andrew, and Harry and Meghan’s stunning decision to step back as senior royals. Despite the fragile monarchy’s best efforts, “never again” seems fast approaching.
Tina Brown has been observing and chronicling the British monarchy for three decades, and her sweeping account is full of powerful revelations, newly reported details, and searing insight gleaned from remarkable access to royal insiders. Stylish, witty, and erudite, The Palace Papers will irrevocably change how the world perceives and understands the royal family.
The Palace Papers (Tina Brown) Book Reviews
Typical Tina BrownThis 1000+ page book offered nothing I had not read elsewhere, and when she found the truth unappetizing, she simply offered rumors that have since been debunked. On the plus side, she has reformulated the poison in her pen so that her nastiness is not quite as brazen as in past ‘books’. Skip this one and save money and avoid boredom..MitchKleinScore: 2/5

I couldn’t put it downAfter living in London for nearly 5 years in the 80’s we became fascinated with the British. Luckier than many Americans we were friends with some connected enough to include us for balls, shooting parties, a visit to Parliament, join a dining club, etc. i guess also descending from British stock we felt loyal to the royals..AliAldenScore: 5/5
Great book.I have never purchased a book on the British royal family before. I am only willing to read books that are solidly sourced, and well written. Tina Brown’s book, I could tell, would meet my requirements for solid reporting. I was not disappointed. I read it though twice. And enjoyed it more the second time through. Highly recommended for those interested in the modern British royal family..LadyjuliaofthelakeScore: 5/5
Here we go again!I wonder how the author feels now knowing how much harry and his first wife lied in the Oprah interview! The only racism Harry’s first wife suffered from was what she invented in her head! Harry’s wife is a liar who will divorce him not long after the death of HMTQ! She’s in it for the money and no other reason! Harry will lose his mind the day she finds someone who has more money than him, she’s a horrible person and she will never be as great as Catherine!.Gmom of 11Score: 2/5
