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 - pretending to be ordinary people for the first and only time in their lives. 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 London'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.
