Stephen Barry, in his first book, provided a heartwarming and friendly view of the life of the British Royal Family. Light fun reading from Charles' late Valet, Stephen Barry (passed away from AIDS)

Stephen Barry, in his first book, provided a heartwarming and friendly view of the life of the British Royal Family. Unfortunately, in this second book, he turns from his previous image of faithful family retainer, to a new, distasteful image as a tattle-tale. As the name implies, "Royal Secrets" was a book that didn't need to be written. Light fun reading from Charles' late Valet, Stephen Barry (passed away from AIDS). Only thing which I found annoying was like most authors on things royal is the usage of the "splendids" "most wonderfuls" and other marbles-in-mouth type terms that he and other lackies have used in their writings. Still, an entertaining read.

I enjoy reading about many different things. I would not want to be a servant, royal or otherwise, but it is interesting to get a point of view from someone who has experienced it.

This was a good, easy read. But as an avid reader of anything on the British Royals, I found the book lacking in anything remotely secret about any of them. But if you've not read extensively on the family, then you would find this book full of information both well-known and lesser-known. The author was well-informed and entertaining. Had I not already read 30+ books on the subject, this would be a 5-star review.

. . .from the former valet of the Prince of Wales. Stephen Barry, in his first book, provided a heartwarming and friendly view of the life of the British Royal Family.
Unfortunately, in this second book, he turns from his previous image of faithful family retainer, to a new, distasteful image as a tattle-tale. As the name implies, "Royal Secrets" was a book that didn't need to be written. Nothing particularly new or scandalous is revealed (other than the author's poor sense of taste).
Whatever good will remained between Barry and the Royal Family after his first book (quite a lot, I expect) certainly could not remain after this one.
Very disappointing. Give it a miss.

If readers know that the stories Ms. Barry tells are from before Diana and During the marriage they won't be disappointed. Mr. Barry has a rye sense of humor which adds to the story-telling. I enjoyed this book!

Still, an entertaining read. Recommended.Most wonderful and splendid.
