Step into a world where history meets heartwarming memories of the monarchy and the impact they had on our lives. Memories of the Royal Family – A Kiwi Collection, is a captivating treasure trove of stories, anecdotes and musings, as seen through the eyes and cherished memories of the Kiwi community. In addition to the stories, this book contains intimate family photos, memorabilia, and original newspaper cuttings lovingly preserved by the contributors. From the poignant to the humourous, these shared moments are a testament to the diversity within our population, and the enduring fascination, admiration, and affection for the Royal Family in Aotearoa. References to radio broadcasts, and original film footage used in New Zealand, provide a deep appreciation of the traditions and social norms of the era.
Memories of the Royal Family – A Kiwi Collection is a touching reminder that history is not just about the past – it’s a living breathing story that continues to shape our lives into the future. Copies are available from online bookstores in paperback, kindle and e.book formats.
