The problem, of course, is Britain's tough libel law, which places the burden of proof on the defendant and means, in effect, that people sued for libel almost always lose actions brought against them. Kelley is very thorough, and there's so much material to weave into a story, that it's almost miraculous how she can make this book so readable that I can't put it down.

From closet homosexuality, affairs, racism, sexism and other issues we are shown the royal family is not the picture of happily ever after it portrays in the media. Many of these people would sell them out.
But the royals do live in a different world--and not just because of the extraordinary privileges.
