in my opinion:

Readers should be aware that these diaries and letters are NOT reproduced verbatim. The editors explain in their introduction that they have made cuts for content, and occasionally altered the chronology without indicating they've done so, in order to fit their view of events. Otherwise, a fascinating glimpse into the inner life of royalty, in their own words.
