Simon Prebble gives an impeccable performance in this story about Queen Elizabeth’s spontaneous and unescorted journey on a train, which throws the staff of the Royal Household into chaos as they hurry to locate Her Majesty before harm befalls her, or MI-5 and the press get involved. Prebble’s elegant reading captures the propriety of the British monarchy and its staff. Prebble’s pacing with the Queen’s soft-spoken, intentional speech is spot-on, as are his flawless transitions from one character’s accent to the next. His intentionally exaggerated American and Indian accents and his rendering of the subtle differences between various English accents make a charming story even more entertaining. A sweet treat for Anglophiles. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
