Does the Queen wear her Crown in Bed?

When Charlotte visited Buckingham Palace recently with CanIWalkMummy and CanIWalkMummy's Mummy, she was bought this rather glossy and fantastic book all about The Queen. 

It's filled with lots of questions young children put to the queen, either in letters or directly and has been written and illustrated in conjunction with the approval of Her Majesty. 

A friendly footman shows two children around Buckingham Palace, and shows insights into the Queen's life from a child's perspective. The two characters in the book are inquisitive and love exploring the palace and hearing all about the fascinating facts surrounding our monarch. 

When I was a child, the Ladybird books on royalty were the be all and end all, but books like "Does the Queen Wear Her Crown in Bed" update the core ideas of giving us "common folk" an insight into royal life in a more contemporary and accessible way. 

This book is available via the internet, or from any Royal Souvenir shops. 

Charlotte's best bit - Reading about the Corgis
