My latest article: The life of Princess Lilian
In the May issue of the British monthly magazine Majesty (Vol. 34, No. 5), which goes on sale today, I write about the extraordinary life of Princess Lilian of Sweden, who died on 10 March at the age of 97. She was the working-class girl who grew up in poverty in Wales and found herself at the heart of one of the great love stories of the twentieth century. Having been forced by circumstances to wait 33 years to marry her prince, she was transformed into the grand old lady of the Swedish monarchy, much loved by both the royal family and the people.
