Another amazing novel by Danielle. Don't want to spoil the story so no comments but a must read!

"Royal" which is somewhat based on the TV series "The Crown," starts in wartime Britain. The fictional King and Queen send their youngest daughter, Charlotte to the Yorkshire countryside away from the bombing in London. Here Charlotte and her host's son, Henry fall n love and the inevitable happens. Much is made of legitimizing the unborn baby before Henry leaves for the front. After this Danielle Steel's wild imagination takes over and the long and the short of it is that there are four deaths in a very short time. Anne Louise is raised by Lucy and subsequently her husband Jonathan also and does not know her birthright. When the truth comes to light there are some poignant scenes which brought a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes and I'm a seasoned, cynical, Steel reader. There is still a lot of melodrama given Annie's love of riding and worth reading to ensure the book has a happy ending which of course one hopes for.
