On Duty with the Queen : My Time as a Buckingham Palace Press Officer Hardback


Dickie Arbiter was the Press Officer for Buckingham Palace for 12 years.

Previously a royal correspondent for a tabloid newspaper, Dickie was a poacher turned gamekeeper, moving to the palace in 1988.

At the forefront of royal engagements, Dickie was privileged to work alongside Princess Diana, Prince Charles, The Duke of Edinburgh, and the Queen, as well as some of the minor royals.

His career spanned some of the most turbulent times for the monarchy, including the divorce of the future King and the death of Princess Diana, to name just two.

His memoir will convey what life was like behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace and his personal and witty anecdotes bring detail to events and warmth to the royals that has never been seen before.
