Five books to better understand the British royal family

At the Guardian, Kathryn Hughes tagged five books to understand the British royal family. including:
Before she married into the royal family, Meghan Markle had her own lifestyle website called The Tig. Those who saw it before she shut it down in 2017 will remember her “badass reading list” which included Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry’s The Little Prince. The novella’s fox is the character with whom Markle identifies most and who tells the Prince: “One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
Read about the other entries on the list.

The Little Prince is among Judy Wajcman's top five books to get to a grip on the pace of life, Rosa Rankin-Gee's top ten novellas about love, Viv Groskop's ten best fictional royal babies, Christopher Clark's five top books on unusual journeys, the best literary quotes ever tattooed, Simon Callow's six best books, Sita Brahmachari's top 10 books that take you travelling, Maria Popova's seven essential books on optimism, and Dalia Sofer's most important books.
