I canâ€™t believe this book never made my Hit List series. I read it over 3 years ago, but had to re-download it to my Kindle after watching the pilot of The Crown. Written by Lady Pamela Hicks (neÃ© Mountbatten), she was the daughter of Louis Mountbatten and first cousin to Prince Philip.
You know the man who bragged of the House of Mountbatten beginning? Thatâ€™s him.
This book recounts Pamelaâ€™s childhood, her witnessing the independence of India firsthand, the ascension of Elizabeth to the throne. It is addictive, salacious, and true – from her perspective.
If you canâ€™t get enough of The Crown, get this book. Immediately.
Quick HitsÂ are short posts that peek into my life – what I’m wearing (and where I’m going), what I’m cooking and eating, and the things I can’t get enough of right now.
