This looks at the lives of successive Queens, Princesses of Wales and royal daughters, and considers how they used their powers of patronage and operated within the confines of royal family politics. It brings together new approaches in gender history and court studies to present a re-evaluation of this previously neglected area in the study of the British monarchy.
