My published piece on royal succession

Just to publish a link to something I’ve had published via my university at http://www.oneeyeonthepast.com which looks at present issues from a historical perspective.

I’ve written on royal succession, comparing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

And, yes, before anyone points it out, I do realise that there is a mistake with Queen Victoria being the only queen since Elizabeth. I did remember about Mary II and Anne, but I meant to type ‘overly successful female monarch’, but missed it during the final check. Oops!

I have an MA in History, with a thesis entitled 'The Many Faces of Anne Boleyn: Perceptions in History, Literature and Film'. I have an interest in the Tudors and the Wars of the Roses along with my love of reading and literature.
