Description


**THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**

Veteran style journalist Elizabeth Holmes expands her popular Instagram series, So Many Thoughts, into a nuanced look at the fashion and branding of the four most influential members of the British Royal Family: Queen Elizabeth II; Diana, Princess of Wales; Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge; and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.



Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are global style icons, their every fashion choice chronicled and celebrated. With all eyes on them, the duchesses select clothes that send a message about their values, interests, and priorities. Their thoughtful sartorial strategies follow in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales, two towering figures known for using their personal style to great acclaim.


With one section devoted to each woman, HRH is a celebration of their stories and their style, pairing hundreds of gorgeous photographs with extensive research. A picture emerges of the British monarchy’s evolution and the power of royal fashion, showing there’s always more than what meets the eye.

Praise For…


A Town & Country "Must-Read Book of Fall 2020"
One of Cosmopolitan's "Best Nonfiction Books of 2020"

"The photos are stunning, but the best parts are the behind-the-scenes fashion tidbits sprinkled throughout the text... author Holmes' narrative effortlessly pulls us through the sweep of history, from WWII to Megxit, outfit by outfit. This is a visual feast suitable for fashionistas and royal watchers alike."
- Booklist, starred review

"Fans of the British royal family will enjoy this spirited retrospective, which should prove popular with a range of readers."
- Library Journal, starred review

"...dives deep into royal style with humor, wit, and heart, into this gorgeous and photo-driven 300-plus-page tome on what Britain's royal women wear and the secret messages those clothes send. Read it once and you'll never look at getting dressed the same way again."
- Town & Country

"A flattering and thoroughly enjoyable assessment of style choices made by Queen Elizabeth II, Diana Spencer, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle...Holmes makes a strong case, in enthusiastic prose along with lavish photographs of all four women, that her subjects' sartorial choices say as much about their positions in the royal family as they do about their individual identities."
- Publishers Weekly

"A smooth, entertaining read fizzing with insight."
- Financial Times
