Royal Reading and Viewing

I must add this new book 17 Carnations, to my royal book collection.  Andrew Morton, bestselling author of a number of biographies featuring the British Royal Family, tells the story of Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor, his American wife, Wallis Simpson, and the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet King after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the Duke's relations with Hitler.

And now I have a new show to watch on Sunday nights.  The Royals starts this coming Sunday, March 15th at 10pm.  This is a drama about a fictional British Royal Family set in modern-day London, who inhabit a world of opulence and regal tradition that caters to any and every desire, but one that also comes with a price tag of duty, destiny, and intense public scrutiny.  Elizabeth Hurley stars as Queen Helena, a fictional modern-day Queen Consort of the United Kingdom.

The Royals...this Sunday night y'all!
