Paolo Filo Della Torre, London Correspondent, La Repubblica

The abdication of her brother-in-law, Edward VIII,  changed the life of Her Majesty the Queen Mother. Her qualities of a lioness showed during the Second World War. Churchill wanted to send her to Canada with her husband and two children and her answer, then, was firm: “The King stays with his people, the Queen with her King and the daughters with their mother”. It was then the Scottish lass became a myth. Churchill utilised her immense popularity and nothing has changed ever since. Maria Luisa Marino’s “Merry mischief”, celebrating Queen Mother’s childhood, seems just to be doing that. What a lovely book, it is hugely enjoyable whilst it gives you a glance of history.
