Product Description

From a childhood free of worry that she might inherit the crown to her transformation of the royal family into an institution for the 21st century, The Queen: The Life and Times of Elizabeth II chronicles the remarkable and in many ways still little known life of our monarch.

These pages present an intimate view of Elizabeth’s challenging reign. She has managed to balance the often conflicting roles of national and international leader, wife and mother, behind-the-scenes politician, and head of Europe’s last great royal family. Moreover, she accomplished all this in the midst of social and political upheaval, family turmoil, and ever more invasive tabloid media scrutiny.

While focusing on the royal family, The Queen: The Life and Times of Elizabeth II also provides discerning profiles of the key non-royal figures in Elizabeth’s life. And the story of the “new Elizabethan Age” is brilliantly illustrated with a multitude of glorious and historic black & white and full-colour photographs.

Bursting with fascinating history and insights, The Queen: The Life and Times of Elizabeth II is an often surprising portrait of the world’s most famous woman. With its premium leather binding, a hubbed spine accented with true 22kt gold, and gilded page ends, this luxurious volume is a beautiful commemorative to a beloved Queen.

Book measures 9½” x 11 ½”.
