THEY NAMED ME ELIZABETH SARAH SUNSHINE, AFTER THE BRAND NEW PRINCESS, BORN AT THE EXACT SAME TIME AS ME, ONLY ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER, TO POSHER PARENTS, WITH A SWANKIER ADDRESS. THE PRINCESS WAS GIVEN A STRING OF NAMES THAT WOULD GROW EVER LONGER SO THAT IN SOME WAYS SHE WOULD ALWAYS HAVE MORE THAN ME. BUT SHE DIDN'T GET THE SUNSHINE... London, 1926: Two baby girls are born just hours and miles apart. Both will grow up in very different families; each will carry the burden of responsibility, service, and duty. One will wear the Crown of the Commonwealth; the other will bury the bodies of the dead. Over the course of ninety years, their paths will cross three times. This is the story of Betsy and Lilibet.
