In this spellbinding tale from Danielle Steel, a princess is sent away to safety during World War II, where she falls in love, and is lost forever. As the war rages on in the summer of 1943, causing massive destruction and widespread fear, the King and Queen choose to quietly send their youngest daughter, Princess Charlotte, to live with a trusted noble family in the country. Despite her fiery, headstrong nature, the princess's fragile health poses far too great a risk for her to remain in war-torn London. Third in line for the throne, seventeen year-old Charlotte reluctantly uses an alias upon her arrival in Yorkshire, her two guardians the only keepers of her true identity. In time, she settles comfortably into a life out of the spotlight, befriending a young evacuee and training with her cherished horse. But no one predicts that in the coming months she will fall deeply in love with her protectors' son. She longs for a normal life. Far from her parents, a tragic turn of events leaves an infant orphaned. Alone in the world, that child will be raised in the most humble circumstances by a modest stable manager and his wife. No one, not even she, knows of her lineage. But when a stack of hidden letters comes to light, a secret kept for nearly two decades finally surfaces, and a long lost princess emerges. A fascinating story of family and royalty, and an unforgettable portrait of an extraordinary young woman and the man who brings her home, Royal is an exhilarating work from America's most beloved storyteller.

Another exceptional page turner from Danielle Steel. Kept me glued to find out what would happen to Princess Charlotte as she took on a different name and identity for protection during the war. Sometimes I think I can pretty much predict how the story will play out, but not this time. Royal will remain as one of my favorite Steel novels!

Another amazing novel by Danielle. Don't want to spoil the story so no comments but a must read!

"Royal" which is somewhat based on the TV series "The Crown," starts in wartime Britain. The fictional King and Queen send their youngest daughter, Charlotte to the Yorkshire countryside away from the bombing in London. Here Charlotte and her host's son, Henry fall n love and the inevitable happens. Much is made of legitimizing the unborn baby before Henry leaves for the front. After this Danielle Steel's wild imagination takes over and the long and the short of it is that there are four deaths in a very short time. Anne Louise is raised by Lucy and subsequently her husband Jonathan also and does not know her birthright. When the truth comes to light there are some poignant scenes which brought a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes and I'm a seasoned, cynical, Steel reader. There is still a lot of melodrama given Annie's love of riding and worth reading to ensure the book has a happy ending which of course one hopes for.
