Talks@Willoughby presents Susanna de Vries speaking about Royal Marriages: Diana, Camilla, Kate and Meghan and princesses who did not live happily ever after

Royal Marriages

Tuesday 23 October 2018, 12.30pm to 1.30pm
Book now for Susanna de Vries

Susanna de Vries gives an uncensored account of nine centuries of royal marriages in her latest book Royal Marriages. For centuries, Princes of Wales and monarchs were wed to titled European princesses and aristocrats who they did not love. Princes married to gain huge dowries from their wives, or military alliances with powerful countries, but often preferred seductive mistresses to their wives. 

Now, decades later, the Queen has relaxed the ancient rules, allowing Prince Charles to marry his mistress and the Queen’s grandsons, William and Harry to marry for love, in a significant change in royal history.

Bookings essential. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. If you require special assistance with seating, please contact the Library prior to the event.

Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the author's book for sale on the day.
