In 1980 Sir John (Jack) Dewhurst, one of the leading obstetricians and gynaecologists of his generation, wrote an intriguing book which reviewed the pregnancies and childbirths of some of Britain's Queens and Princesses.
He gave his expert opinion on many controversial questions such as: Why Queen Anne, despite her many pregnancies, was unable to produce an heir; why Princess Charlotte tragically died during labour; how deeply did Queen Victoria resent her repeated confinements - and analysed some historical myths surrounding royal births.
This is a timely revision of this absorbing book which covers important historical aspects of the monarchy.
Updated by the author of Bringing Them Up Royal, to include the modern day royal family.
