On its first publication in the nineties, Dennis Friedman’s Inheritance  caused a furore as he traced the (many) problems of the Royal family as it was then back to Queen Victoria’s nursery, unveiling a host of psychodramas played out against a privileged background of English palaces and Scottish castles. As the royal line is followed down the generations no direct descendent is overlooked, no issue is sidestepped and in exploring Royal dynamics, Inheritance sheds light on problems found in any family.
