Before 1917, Great Britain’s royal family’s name was Saxe-Coburg-Gotha but in the midst of World War I and facing the population’s strong anti-German feeling, it was better to adopt a more English name: the Windsor - after the name of their castle - were born. The Windsor family did not have to wait the late 20th century and its gossip magazines and social networks to encounter with scandal. Indeed, in 1936, when George V dies, Edouard VIII becomes the king of his country but in the meantime he has met the captivating and scandalous divorcee, Wallis Simpson, whom he prefers to choose over the royal crown. His brother, unprepared to the role, becomes George VI and has to fight against his stammering when he appears in public. Although he is often mocked, his family becomes highly popular during and following World War II thanks to a courageous and exemplary attitude, as it stands by its people. In 1953, the king’s eldest daughter is crowned and from then, Elisabeth II has faced a life often resembling the episode of a Dynasty episode. From her tactlessness husband Philip to her sister Margaret who found comfort, from loosing the love of her life, Peter Townsend, in alcohol and multiple love affairs alongside her sons’ troublesome wives, the Queen has not been spared by scandals. As the monarchy was shaken by Princess Diana’s death whose popularity among the media and people had out-shined the royal tribe, Elisabeth II found in her eccentric mother, Queen Mum and the two young princes, William alongside his respectful wife, Catherine, and Harry, figures that have maintained British’s affection. Although many see in Elisabeth II an uptight old lady who loves nothing more than her corgis, hats and handbags, what if the Queen was the original rebel of her family? A woman who had chosen to marry the penniless and handsome man she loved despite her parents’ defiance.
