Hear ye! We’re nearly at the end of July, but there’s still time for you to grab a copy of this month’s (Issue 17) History of Royals magazine, for it contains my latest article, “Crossing the Line” about the tumultuous relationship between Queen Anne and her decades-long favourite, Sarah Churchill. Those of you who follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook already knew about this, but for those who aren’t on those social media platforms, I thought it best to type up a quick post here. This issue came out on the 6th of July, but should still be available from any good bookseller (including in the USA).
Those who have been readers of this site for some time know that I had a near-fatal disease last November, so being able to take care of the baby and continue researching has been so wonderful and I’m grateful to still be around. It’s my first article since having my baby and it proved challenging but worthwhile and I’m proud of it (especially as the husband says it’s the “best thing” I’ve “written yet”). Whilst I appreciate his support, I’d love to hear what you think of it.
We found my magazine when we went to Tesco in Shrewsbury, and momma got rather excited, as you can see here. The interior of the article contains some beautiful portraits of Queen Anne, Sarah Churchill, and a lovely family portrait of the Churchill family. The magazine itself has a few more articles that will be of interest to seventeenth-century Stuart history fans: James I and the Witches, Charles I: Patron of Art, and, of course, a feature “A Deadly Feud” about Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots.
Anyway, if you do happen to get a copy, and have any questions, please feel free to comment below.
I hope you have a great weekend!
