Becoming Queen by Kate Williams

I watched the Royal Wedding, did you? 
Will there be a baby soon? Will Harry marry next?


Try more than 10 royal princes and princesses with no legitimate heirs. Becoming Queen by Kate Williams follows the British monarchy from randy Georgian lows to the cusp of even-piano-legs-are-modestly-clothed Victorian highs. It does so by looking at the lives of two princesses. Charlotte died in childbirth before she could become Queen. Victoria survived what could only be described as mental abuse from her mother and her mother's "advisor" to finally become queen in 1839.  

All the fun of the tabloids and none of the shame.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation Becs.
    Don't think Harry will marry for a while. Less pressure on him now that William is wed.

  4. The "pane of glass" image also helps your backswing. If you swing the club too much Asics Onitsuka Tiger Shoes to the outside during the initial part of your back swing, you will break the pane of glass. By keeping Hogan's image in your mind as you start your < align="left">Belstaff backswing your arms will stay connected to your body - you are almost forced to swing the club on plane!
