Princesses of Wales

The title "Princess of Wales" has enjoyed a high profile in recent years, and the events of 2005 placed it once again in the spotlight. Yet until now we have lacked any published overview of the history of the title and the lives of the women who have held it.
Deborah Fisher looks back to the Norman conquest of Wales, and earlier, to describe the princess’s changing role, bringing the picture comletely up to date and speculating on future developments.
Incorporating material from a variety of sources, she unravels a history that includes love, duty and motherhood along with adulterous passion, divorce and tragic death--a history that often repeats itself.
