The riveting inside story of the British royal family since the death of Princess Diana, from the Queen’s tightening grip to the defection of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Diana Chronicles

“Never again” became Queen Elizabeth II’s mantra shortly after Princess Diana’s tragic death. More specifically, there could never be “another Diana”—a member of the family whose global popularity upstaged, outshone, and posed an existential threat to the British monarchy.

Picking up where Tina Brown’s masterful The Diana Chronicles left off, The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the traumatic years when Diana’s blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet.

Brown takes readers on a tour de force journey through the scandals, love affairs, power plays, and betrayals that have buffeted the House of Windsor over the last twenty-five years. We see the Queen’s stoic resolve as she coped with the passing of Princess Margaret, the Queen Mother, and Prince Philip, her partner for seven decades, and triumphed in her Jubilee years even as the family dramas raged around her. Brown explores Prince Charles’s determination to make Camilla Parker Bowles his queen, the tension between two princes on “different paths,” the ascendance of the resolute Kate Middleton, the disturbing allegations surrounding Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein, and Harry and Meghan’s stunning decision to step back as senior royals. Despite the fragile monarchy’s best efforts, “never again” seems fast approaching.

Tina Brown has been observing and chronicling the British monarchy for three decades, and her sweeping account is full of powerful revelations, colorful details, and searing insight gleaned from remarkable access to royal insiders. Stylish, witty, and erudite, The Palace Papers will irrevocably change how the world perceives and understands the royal family.
