Strachey has made a very touching portrait etrachey the last days of the prince and the inconsolable grief of the queen upon the untimely demise of her husband due to Typhoid fever. I also enjoyed Strachey’s turn of phrase and his ability to create such effective word-pictures of this fascinating monarch and her life. The diction is really fine and the narrative is touchingly penned.
