For all that has been written about the whole shocking drama of the Second World War, it is odd that historians have virtually ignored the curious role played in London by nearly a dozen European royal families. Yet this exodus of refugee monarchs to Shakespeare’s “scepter’d isle” deserves something more than marginal reference in the annals of the twentieth century’s most horrific conflict. For in their posh suites at Claridge’s and the Ritz, the exiled royalty of Europe performed what Winston Churchill called “a beggar’s opera” that was at times amusing, often sad, but seldom dull. This 2,400-word article was originally written as a book proposal. It has been published previously in various electronic formats and has also been considered as the basis for a television series. The current edition includes a new foreword by the author.
