True, but when the alternate reality is as close to true history as this one is, reality and true history can't help but intrude into the reader's mind a little bit -- at least I found that to be the case.

The same here. The idea of a super-powered British Royal family is pretty much shoehorned into WWII instead of being allowed to shape its timeline more. A timeline where the Russian German and (assumably) Austro-Hungarian Empires still stood with their royal families intact would have been a far more interesting book.

Only in such because of the actions of Prince Henry in the book. The King seemed more concerned about his palace's architecture than his subjects, and Prince Arthur was just a self-centered douche.

I definitely felt that the Windsors living in luxuryt and throwing a gala while London was getting bombed was a pretty anti-monarchy statement. Quite different from the real Windsors.

Oh, the poor Windsors. :lol:

The truth hurts. The real life family of King George VI lived under the same rationing measures of his subjects.

Plus, his younger brother, George, Duke of Kent, was killed with a plane crash while serving with the RAF.

Also, the future Queen Elizabeth II served with the British Women's Auxiliary Territorial Service after she turned 18 in 1945.

Also of note: the future George VI saw action with the Royal Navy during the Battle of Jutland in WW I.
