THE QUEEN'S HOUSES. Alan Titchmarsh. BBC Books, BBC Worldwide Ltd, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Trafalgar Square Publishing, North Pomfret. 256 pp. 25 x 19 cm. ISBN 9781849902175 In English.
Publisher's description: Both a sumptuous visual guide and an affectionate look at the personal family stories behind the formal grandeur of the royal residencies. The Queen's life is dedicated to her public--every move is scrutinized, every word noted. But her homes are havens where peace can be found, away from watchful eyes; sanctuaries of private calm in a whirlwind life of public duty. Here Alan Titchmarsh takes readers on a tour of the royal residences, examining the personal family stories behind these magnificent buildings. Through personal reflections, interviews with royal staff, and meticulous historical research, Alan looks beyond the formal grandeur of Buckingham Palace, the imposing structure of Windsor Castle, and the private escape offered by Balmoral and others. Illustrated with intimate family photographs and evocative memorabilia, The Queen's Houses offers a glimpse of life behind the state banquets and sovereign duties--a respectful study of the royal family at home.
