WIN a Signed Copy of The Other Side of the Coin, by Angela Kelly

The Other Side of the Coin


Angela Kelly LVO has worked with the Queen and walked the corridors of the Royal Household for twenty-five years, initially as Her Majesty’s Senior Dresser and then latterly as Her Majesty’s Personal Advisor, Curator (The Queen’s Jewellery, Insignias and Wardrobe) and In-house Designer. As the first person in history to hold this title, she shares a uniquely close working relationship with The Queen.

In The Other Side of the Coin, the Queen has personally given Angela her blessing to share their unparalleled bond with the world. Angela Kelly is the first serving member of the Royal Household to have been given this extraordinary permission.

Whether it’s preparing for a formal occasion or brightening Her Majesty’s day with a playful joke, Angela’s priority is to serve and support. Sharing never-before-seen photographs – many from Angela’s own private collection – and charming anecdotes of their time spent together, this revealing book provides memorable insights into what it’s like to work closely with the Queen, to curate her wardrobe and to discover a true and lasting connection along the way.

The Other Side of the Coin is published by Harper- Collins and is also available as an audiobook read by Angela Kelly.

We have a signed copy of the book to give away (and a small sewing kit) to one lucky Royal Life reader, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to answer the following question:

One of Angela Kelly’s most famous creations is the replica of the Royal Christening Gown commissioned by Queen Victoria for the christening of her first child.
