Quick Overview

Based on unique access to the Royal Archives in Windsor, Crown and Shamrock is an absorbing account of Irish links with British Royalty, past and present.

In this book, author Mary Kenny gives us a unique approach and insight into the historical relationship between the British monarchy and the Irish governments of the day. Based on unique access to the Royal Archives in Windsor, and other historical material, as well as on personal memoir, Mary Kenny reveals some previously unappreciated aspects of the Crown and Shamrock.

The relationship of Queen Victoria and her visit to Ireland, King Edward VII's exceptionally benign attitudes to Catholics, George V's obsessive worries about civil war between North and South, and how Ireland was constitutionally altered (and morally driven) by the Abdication Crisis of 1936.

The current relationship between Queen Elizabeth II and the Republic is seen by many as the best it has ever been and in May of this year she will be visiting Dublin for the first time in her reign
