Phil and I have been watching The Crown on Netflix and it’s been interesting to see how the monarchy has changed over the years, and how it continues to change, still. That program is not suitable for our children to watch; however, they can still learn about royalty (Victoria is my daughter’s favourite so far). This week’s book selection is all about some of the world’s more colourful and interesting monarchs. Who would you say is the monarch with the most intriguing history?
