Prince Charles was once quoted as saying "Do you expect me to be the first Prince of Wales in history not to have a mistress?" while his mother Elizabeth II famously said that "Like all the best families, we have our share of eccentricities, of impetuous and wayward youngsters and of family disagreements." Highlighting the unique mix of tragedy, comedy, romance, heroism, and incompetence that makes royalty such a source of unparalleled fascination, this quotable miscellany brings together many hundreds of gems that have fallen from the mouths of monarchs over the centuries. Sometimes unintentionally funny, cutting, or downright daft, they prove that the royals are just like the rest of us, and not everything they say is scripted.
