On VE night, 1945, the then teenage princesses, Elizabeth and Margaret, were allowed to leave the palace incognito and join the parties and festivities with their subjects. The Palace was forced to issue a statement that the episode was without incident; but what if...' Peter Bradshaw takes this nugget of history as the basis for this brilliantly comic crime thriller. Princess Margaret steals a policeman' s hat, and Elizabeth encounters Londo' s criminal underworld. The future Queen must use all her wit and courage to get out of a very sticky situation... With sharp but affectionate humour, this is an enjoyable fictional crime caper and is sure to attract comment.
