A Right Royal Read

As we are approaching the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, our thoughts turned to royals in fiction.
 There are many historical novels which explore the lives of past kings and queens - do you enjoy reading these? Share your favourites with us.
The present Queen Elizabeth features in the books above.
She is 'the Uncommon Reader' in Alan Bennett's story.
In 'Springtime at Burracombe' it is 1953 and approaching the Queen's Coronation and in 'Remembering the Bones' there is to be an 80th birthday lunch at Buckingham Palace for ninety-nine Commonwealth subjects born on the same day as the Queen - but one of them has an accident on the way.
Have you read any other novels which include the Queen?
