The Wicked Wit of Queen Elizabeth II

Book - 2017 | First Berkley edition.
Rate this:
A charming collection of quotes and anecdotes celebrating England's Queen Elizabeth II, the incomparable British monarch.

When we think of the queen, we probably picture a serious, dignified personage complete with majestic hat and matching handbag. But The Wicked Wit of Queen Elizabeth II reveals a side of the monarch the public rarely sees, her healthy sense of humor: sometimes silly, sometimes sarcastic--and occasionally unintentional (to guitar legend Eric Clapton: "Have you been playing long?")!

This is a delightful celebration of the queen's humor revealed through her own words on topics from family and travel to pets and hobbies, as well as stories from the royal household of Britain's longest-serving monarch. In addition to the queen, other royals get in their two cents, including the famously filterless Prince Philip and the acerbic Princess Margaret, as well as Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
