Conversations with The Queen – WIN a copy of ‘What The Queen said to me’!

The Queen is renowned for her conversational skills, meeting people from all walks of life on a daily basis. So it comes as no surprise that someone has collected all of the interesting titbits into a book!

‘What The Queen said to me’ is a new publication by Chilli Brenner, featuring the real-life conversations Her Majesty has had with her subjects and admirers who were lucky enough to speak to her.

While often just a few brief seconds, these conversations – full of wisdom, wit and joy – have created special memories for people.

“From walkabouts to investitures, civil servants to Sirs, royal outfitters to radio DJ’s, artists to head teachers, the book has stories from all walks of life covering many different royal occasions,” reads the blurb.

All reviews so far have been very positive: “This is such a beautiful book. Definitely one for the coffee table. So many anecdotes that give you an deeper insight into who the Queen really is. Some very touching and funny moments,” one reads.

Victoria has a passion for British history and Constitutional Monarchy, hence her reasons for founding The Crown Chronicles. Her specialism is the Early Modern era, with particular emphasis on the Tudor and Stuart dynasties. She is also a keen reader (usually something historical), baker and shopper. Her motto is to have a full bookcase, but a fuller wardrobe. Miss Howard also works closely with the British Monarchist Foundation as their Press Secretary and Spokesman.
