The story of William Tallon, the late Queen Mother’s most devoted servant. Charming, loyal, promiscuous and in possession of a truly wicked sense of humour, Billy entered royal service at the age of 15 and, over the next fifty years, became one of the most notorious figures to have graced the royal household. Over time Billy became one of the Queen Mother’s most trusted friends and confidants. She adored him, and he her, perhaps because of his high camp style or his witty and provocative remarks about the well-born equerries, press and advisers. Sometimes scandalous, often shocking, always entertaining, Backstairs Billy is the fascinating life story of the man who spent more than half a century working for one of the world’s most elusive institutions.
