Top ten books about royal families

Deborah Cadbury's latest book is Queen Victoria's Matchmaking: The Royal Marriages that Shaped Europe. One of the author's ten top books about royal families, as shared at the Guardian:
The White Queen by Philippa Gregory (2009)

In her series of historical novels, The Cousins’ War, Gregory unfolds the power struggles of the York and Lancaster dynasties through the eyes of its key women, starting here with Elisabeth Woodville. The conflicting ambitions of Elisabeth, Anne Neville and Margaret Beaufort prove to be a compelling vehicle with which to explore the complexities of the Wars of the Roses.

The White Queen is among five books Amy Wilkinson recommended Kate Middleton should read while waiting to give birth and Amanda Donohoe's six best books.
