Reviews

"Four female historians give insights into both public weddings and ones that took place in secret" * Sunday Express *
"The excitement surrounding the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton has prompted four of Britain's top historical biographers to look closely at royal weddings from 1066 to the present day. Here, each writer focuses on different areas of interest. Fascinating anecdotal details are revealed in the course of this most informative and entertaining overview of royal weddings through history, some amusing, some poignant, some bawdy. The Ring and the Crown places the royal wedding of the heir to the throne in historical perspective, and it does so with carefully selected illustrations that help make the authors' insights come even more vividly alive." * Press Association *
"One for history buffs and soppy romantics alike, this heavily illustrated tome looks back at previous nuptials from the Norman conquest to Charles and Camilla. It's fascinating to see Wills and Kate's big day put in its historical context" * Bella *
"An absolutely fascinating book, beautifully illustrated . . . a perfect souvenir to keep for future generations: every home should have a copy!" * Country Life *
"Royal marriages since 1066 under a historian's sharp eye" * Telegraph *
