Royal life is done up royally in Heather Wilds's expert narration of Worsley's stories of the courtiers who attended Britain's first Georgian kings. The circumstances that put a line of petty German monarchs onto the throne of England in the 1700s are droll enough, and the assembly of underlings who inhabited London's Kensington Palace-- and are commemorated in the portraits that hang there--are a showcase of eighteenth-century manners, notions, and styles, beautifully rendered here in prose and voice. Wilds's articulation is immaculate, and the narrative--often comical, more often sad--is a feast for the royalists among us. For the rest of us, it's sufficiently entertaining. D.A.W.
