Morton has written extensively on celebrity including biographies of Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, and Madonna, as well as the British royal family.

His #1 New York Times bestselling biography Diana: Her True Story won international acclaim, described by critics as a "modern classic" and "the closest we will ever come to her autobiography."
Reviews
"Incisive character sketches and a touch of gossip make this admiring biography go down smooth."--Publishers Weekly
"Morton uses archival research and his relationships with palace insiders to paint a complete written portrait of Britain's longest reigning monarch . . . Morton also unpacks some buzzier tidbits including rumors about her husband's infidelity, her sister's tumultuous marriage, Princess Diana's death, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's high profile exit from the royal fam."--The Skimm
Praise for Elizabeth & Margaret:

"The king of royal tea...Morton provides rich context on the coldness of royal life...Margaret's tale is revelatory."--New York Times
"A diligent and well-researched job, examining the closeness of the sisters and their conflicted relationship in a seamless, readable way."--Wall Street Journal
"Deliciously detailed, sometimes gossipy, often moving, this in-depth examination of royal siblings is sure to be in demand."--Booklist
"Morton's insightful analysis of the complex relationship between Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret succeeds in humanizing two extremely public figures and the myths surrounding them. It will engage history buffs, biography readers, and especially fans of The Crown."--Library Journal
"Andrew Morton has been the best known and most accessible, if not the foremost, biographer of England's royal family."--New York Times
"A narrative that hits all the plot points... of course, this is precisely as Queen Elizabeth would have wanted it."--Washington Post
"A fitting tribute to a long reign."--Kirkus
"This is something historians will enjoy and the most avid Anglophile should pounce on . . . will make you smile; enjoyment like you'll get here is hard to hide."--Naples Daily News
"It's hard to come away from this book without feeling some affection for [the queen]--regardless of your views on the monarchy."--Star Tribune
