Lucy Worsley takes the reader on a journey of Georgian reign, told through the eyes of a courtier. She brings humanity to the stereotype of a self interested courtier and explorers life at Kensington Palace during the reign of George II and Queen Caroline.

Among them, a Vice Chamberlain with many vices, a Maid of Honour with a secret marriage, a pushy painter, an alcoholic equerry, a Wild Boy, a penniless poet, a dwarf comedian, two mysterious turbaned Turks and any number of discarded royal mistresses.
