A great book about Queen Victoria and the people who served as her maids-of-honour, ladies-in-waiting not to mention her private secretaries, footmen and the like. Including the notorious John Brown. Plenty of entertaining stories, a few sad ones, and in the center of it all, the United Kingdom's longest reigning monarch -- up to now, it is -- Queen Victoria. Plenty of photographs, a fine bibliography, and a good read. Four stars overall and a happy recommend for royal watchers.
