Yvonne Ward


Yvonne M. Ward is the author of Unsuitable for Publication: Editing Queen Victoria (2013, Black Inc.) and a historian with a doctorate from La Trobe University. While researching the book, Yvonne was one of the few people ever to gain access to the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.

Her research also took her to the Royal Palace in Brussels, various family archives, libraries, and universities in Britain, Germany, Portugal, and North America.

Yvonne’s work has been highly praised by the eminent historians Sir David Cannadine, Dr David Starkey and Robert Lacey. Her publications include the lead essay in a special edition of The Court Historian, published to mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
