Reviews

Unsurprisingly, Pamela became one of the two ladies-in-waiting to accompany the Princess on her 1952 Commonwealth tour. Queen Mary told her: "You must remember that you will be "in-waiting" and so you are to call her "Princess Elizabeth" and "Ma'am" and never Lilibet. It was from that tour that Elizabeth returned as Queen, and Pamela's description of how the Princess learned of the death of her father, King George VI, is very moving. - Anne de Courcy, MAIL ON SUNDAYAfter India she writes as a participant of such well-known set-pieces as the current queen's wedding, her coronation and her first commonwealth tour.
