PleasantI can t quite put my finger on it Angela comes across as a very competent dresser to HM but I didn t like the inclusion of so many personal endorsements from family and co workers It all felt a little too self glorifying.
There was much that was fascinating but so sycophantic and lots of exclamation points.
A fascinating glimpse of life behind the scenes in the Queen s household As the Queen s Personal Assistant and senior dresser, Angela Kelly describes her numerous duties including consulting with Queen about suitable fashions for every occasion, caring for delicate fabrics and conducting advance visits to royal tour itineraries to plan the Queen s wardrobe Kelly also describes the unique aspects of her role including ironing on the royal train following the rhythm of the train like surfing and letting the bookies know when to close the betting on the colour of the Queen s hat at Royal Ascot.
There is an extensive section devoted to the Queen s fashions from the 2010 Canadian tour including her dress for the official dinner in Toronto, which included a shimmering crystal maple leaf design, and the beadwork created by t Amusing and lightheartedSuch a lovely account of her majesty the Queen Angela Kelly writes descreetly and with joy for a job she clearly love I love all things about the British monarchy and had read Angels Kelly s first book about dressing the queen This go round, she delves deeper into the queen s life and engagements Loved it.
A bit disappointing It s very nicely produced with some lovely pictures of the clothes The interesting bits for me are the details of how it all works with a question or two unanswered does the Queen or The Queen not keep any clothes in her different houses or does it all have to be packed for travel with every move , the research before overseas trips to make sure the colours are appropriate and not likely to cause offence, and to look for extra features which might please the host country, and of course the clothes I am quite intrigued by the state dresses but there is not much about them or about evening gowns, so I am guessing that Angela Kelly mainly does the day wear and cocktail dresses Less good things it is quite obsequious but you would expect that Angela Kelly comes across as a bit defensive she doesn t forget a slight as well as boastful She has a fantas You know how when you had to write a paper in school and there was a minimum length requirement so you just kept repeating and rewording the same thoughts over and over That is this book Kelly seems like a truly sweet lady But as she still works for the Queen, the revelations are not a thrill This is stodgy from start to finish.
Some interesting details, but I felt there was way too much patting herself on the back by the author I don t understand why letters were included in this book that praised the author As a result, I skipped these parts and found the book to be disappointing.
