Royalty Inc: Britain's Best-Known Brand by Stephen Bates was all about the Royal Family. I admit I am not a fan of the Royal Family at all and would much prefer to have a President as head of state. However the book did open my eyes a bit about what they all actually do and it certainly was very interesting reading how the Queen interacts with government. The chapters about the Queen and Prince Charles were by far the most interesting, I wouldn't say Stephen Bates was the greatest historian ever when he goes back and looks at previous monarchs. However his grasp of the current Royal Family is very good. Rating 7/10.
