Publisher's Summary

When a Republican party wins the general election, they strip the royal family of everything and send them to live on a housing estate in the Midlands.
Exchanging caviar for boiled eggs, servants for a social worker named Trish, the queen and her family learn what it means to be poor among the great unwashed. Is their breeding sufficient to allow them to rise above their changed circumstance, or deep down are they really just like everyone else?

Very, very funny

A fabulous idea for a book (I wonder if any of the royals have read it? I would love to know their opinion!) and I still found it relevant and engaging despite my reading it a decade or so after the fact. Great political satire, great characters, despite many being hugely exaggerated stereotypes, this added to the humour and was just right for this book! Love Sue Townsend, no cringe-worthy cliches in her writing, and this is one of her best.
