All the time I was reading this book, I kept asking myself ‘Why am I reading this book?’ It is well written enough, but these scandals of over 100 years ago have little relevance or interest today. I am gradually losing my taste for reading about the royals, whether yesterday or today.
So Edward (Bertie to family and friends) was a libertine in his youth and a serial adulterer in his maturity. The women he found fascinating were somewhat interesting, but not enough to warrant my giving up several hours of my life reading about them.
I’m swearing off the royal family, past and present.
