York Explore
March 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm £8
Andrew Lownie will talk about The Mounbattens: Their Lives and Loves, a fresh and revealing portrait of the couple behind the modern royal family.
A major figure behind his nephew Philip’s marriage to Queen Elizabeth II, Dickie Mountbatten’s career included being Supreme Allied Commander of South East Asia during World War Two and the last Viceroy of India. Once the richest woman in Britain and a socialite who enjoyed numerous affairs, Edwina Mountbatten emerged from World War Two as a much loved and very effective charity worker.  In The Mounbattens: Their Lives and Loves, prize-winning and bestselling historian Andrew Lownie draws on four years of research to provide a fresh and revealing portrait of the couple behind the modern royal family.
