From the cover: During the twentieth century, the House of Windsor has had its share of difficulties the abdication crisis of 1936, the very public break-up of the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales and the death of Diana in 1997 were all dark days for the monarchy. But there has also been much to celebrate the birth of seven grandchildren to the Queen; the celebration of her Silver and Golden Wedding Anniversaries with the Duke of Edinburgh; and most recently the Queens Golden Jubilee of 2002.
The Royal Family has never before been so accessible: modern technology has allowed the public to follow the lives of the Queen and her family much more closely. Media and public fascination has grown to unprecedented levels over the last three decades; the House of Windsor has had to adapt to being in the public gaze, and accept that the days of unquestioning reverence are long gone. Despite this, the Royal Family is held in high regard by Britons and throughout the world, acting as a focus for national identity, unity and pride, and giving an enduring sense of stability and continuity to many.
