THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER BOOK OF THE YEAR AT THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS What I like about this
'For the nearly seven decades of her reign, Her Majesty The Queen has used clothing to create a powerful visual identity that transcends fashion and has made her perhaps the most readily identifiable person on the planet. Angela Kelly, building on the work of the great designers and milliners who have worked with Her Majesty through the years - including couturiers Sir Norman Hartnell, Sir Hardy Amies, and Ian Thomas, and milliners such as Simone Mirman and Freddy Fox - brings her own imagination to bear on an iconic 'uniform' that suggests continuity and tradition, and ensures that the wearer is always the most visible person in a room or a crowd.' - Anna Wintour,Vogue 'Fascinating book' - HELLO! 'The book is a trove of warm and insightful anecdotes' - Daily Mail 'Angela Kelly shares fascinating and charming anecdotes' - Good Housekeeping 'Life with the Queen uncloaked. It is the Queen, and Angela's photographs of her, that make this anecdotal book unique. The pages are full of small pranks and light-hearted fun. The Other Side of the Coin lifts the royal curtain without offending anyone. *****' - Daily Express 'Reveals the inner workings of the royal wardrobe...this is a book that is as much about love as clothing. Kelly knows what it is like to walk in Her Majesty's shows - she breaks in the monarch's new pumps to make them comfortable after all...Kelly's commitment to making the Queen's life rings out from every page. The level of detail in this book occasionally stuns. The Poppins-like staunch and breezy pronouncements that are scattered through this volume are very likeable...you cannot help wondering what it would be like to have your own Miss Kelly looking out for you, anticipating your every need, devoted to your ventures' - Financial Times.
