Read full description of the books Princesses: The Six Daughters of George III:King George III believed that his six daughters were perfectly content with a life of charitable works and lady-like accomplishments at Windsor. But secretly, as Flora Fraser's absorbing narrative of royal repression and sexual licence shows, the sisters enjoyed startling freedom. Scandal and intrigue often erupted within the castle walls as the sisters forged lives torn between love for an ailing father and longing for independence.
With unparalleled access to Royal and private family papers, Flora Fraser turns the historical searchlight on George III and his daughters. Writing with wit, zest and sympathy, she creates an extraordinary historical saga and confirms her place among our finest biographers
