Three authors whose books feature royal figures discuss the pleasures and ethics of writing about the royal family.

Up for discussion is the fascination of writing about royalty and whether it throws up any particular joys or pitfalls. Also tackled are the ethical considerations in fictionalising the inner lives of these famous public figures and what hurdles must be conquered when lifting the curtains on the Windsors.  These ideas and more will be tackled by Jane Thynne, Sophia Bennett and Andrew Lownie.

Its mystery is its life. We must not let in daylight upon magic.’ – Walter Bagehot
