Synopsis : What does it mean to be royal? At a time when the monarch no longer rules by divine right and governing powers fall to our elected leaders, the concept of royalty grows ever more elusive. The intellectual argument for the abolition of the monarchy is strong, and yet public interest in the royals continues to grow. Jeremy Paxman seeks to find out how the role of our head of state has changed over the years and what the implications have been. With characteristic intelligence and humour, he looks at every aspect of the monarchy and how it has related to politics, religion, the military and the law. With a mixture of popular history, direct reportage and hilarious anecdote, the master of investigative journalism seeks to find out just how important the Royal Family is to our national identity.
Paxman's book is everyhing that royalty is not allowed to be - witty, stylish, intelligent, pugnacious and political. ( The Times)
On Royalty is an absorbing, well-researched book, part serious enquiry, part rollicking anecdote. ( Evening Standard)
Action-packed and entertaining. (The Sunday Telegraph)
