“A sharply observed (and sometimes very funny) portrait of the frivolous world of wealth and luxury inhabited by the Windsors.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times 
“Beguiling. . . . Blackwood is witty, understated and perceptive.” —The Washington Post 
“The central character in The Last of the Duchess never appears at all but, like Godot in Beckett’s play, becomes more powerful by her absence. . . . Brilliant—and brilliantly entertaining—journalism.” —Chicago Tribune
“A fierce, scintillatingly funny report on a dying social circle.” —The Independent (London)
