Description

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II carried out her role as Sovereign with flawless professionalism. Her demeanour was perfect, and in the seventy years she reigned she epitomised all the hallmarks of an iconic sovereign beloved of her people.

As Heir Presumptive, the young Princess Elizabeth received special tuition in law and constitutional history to prepare her for her future role as Sovereign.

When she succeeded her father, King George VI, on 6th February 1952, Elizabeth was only twenty-five years old. Married for just five years with two young children, her life changed irrevocably. The responsibilities of monarchy took precedence over all else, and the public duties invariably had first call on the Queen's time and energy.

This book celebrates the highlights and challenges of the Queen's reign over the past seven decades:

  • Includes stunning photos from her Accession and Coronation in 1952
  • Celebrates her marriage to Philip, the constant 'rock' by her side until his death in April 2021
  • Features the importance of her parents, her sister Margaret and her beloved children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren
  • Explores the homes and locations that had a special place in her heart - Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral and Sandringham as well as The Royal Yacht Britannia
  • Focuses on the enduring contribution HM Queen Elizabeth made to life in the UK and the Commonwealth as well as her reputation worldwide in celebration of her Platinum Jubilee
