Royal throne : the future of the monarchy by Elizabeth Longford ( Book )
16 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1992 was the most momentous year for the British Royal Family since the abdication of Edward VIII 57 years earlier, fuelling massive media speculation about the very future of the Monarchy--a subject affecting the foundations of the British Constitution. Elizabeth Longford, leading biographer of the Royal House of Windsor, interviewed both named and unnamed sources close to the Royal Family to gather the evidence for this book. It is a pithy and perceptive appraisal of how the image of the Monarchy was affected by recent royal behaviour in public and in private. Lady Longford uses her historical knowledge of previous royal crises to assess the gravity of the situation. She analyses the deeper issues affecting the future of the Royal Family such as the Queen's decision to pay income tax, the curtailment of the Civil List and the separation of the Prince and Princess of Wales.--From publisher description

Queen Victoria by Elizabeth Longford ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Queen Victoria is the longest reigning monarch in British history. In this concise biography, Lady Longford, long recognised as an authority on the subject, gives a full account of Queen Victoria's life and provides her unique assessment of the monarch. David Cannandine hailed her "Victoria RI" as "preeminent in the genre...the commissed biography that the great Queen never got". Victoria ascended the throne in 1837 on the death of her uncle William IV. In 1840, she married her first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and for the next twenty years they were inseperable. Their descendants were to succeed to most of the thrones of Europe. When Albert died in 1861, Victoria's overwhelming grief meant that she virtually withdrew from public life. This perceived dereliction of her duty, coupled with rumours about her relationship with her Scottish ghillie John Brown, led to increasing criticism. Coaxed back into the public eye by Disraeli, she resumed her former enthusiasm for political and constitutional matters with vigour until her death in 1901
