My Review

The Queens knickers really is a whole lot of fun! My little girl is obsessed with the Queen what with seeing her on the T.V. so much over the Jubilee celebrations recently, so this charming little book was just perfect for her. This is a rather cheeky little book that I would easily recommend to anyone, it’s definitely made it’s way onto out favourites shelf!

As everyone knows the queen is a very busy lady, she has so many special occasions to attend. The Queen wears fancy hats that match her outfits perfectly but does she also wear matching knickers?… Read more >>>
