  • Entertainingsuperb… history needs anecdote to make us relate to it, something Tinniswood [does] brilliantly.

    Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year
  • Adrian Tinniswood’s handsomely produced Behind the Throne is full of such pleasing details, as it takes us on a fascinating snoop into the studies, kitchens and bedrooms of various monarchs from Elizabeth I to the present queen… Tinniswood gets [the tone] just right, never overly deferential, but humorous and distantly respectful… Behind the Throne is a wonderfully entertaining account of life through five centuries of royal households.

    Christopher Hart, Sunday Times
