King of Hearts
by Alistair Beaton
Princess Di, Wallis Simpson – why is it always affairs of the heart that send the Windsors into meltdown? In Alistair Beaton’s delicious new satire, love, politics and royalty collide to hilarious effect.
The handsome young heir to the throne is in love. His fiancee is attractive, intelligent, cultured – and a Muslim. Suddenly it’s not only the future of the Royal Family under question but the very identity of Britain itself, as a panicked Prime Minister grapples with the possibility of a Muslim monarchy.
