Description

From one of Britain’s best-known observers of the monarchy—an intimate portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, England’s longest-reigning queen, in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee 
 History has known no monarch like her. She has traveled farther than all her predecessors put together and lived longer than any of them. She has known more historic figures than anyone alive—from Churchill to Mandela, de Gaulle to Obama. Now, the distinguished royal writer Robert Hardman has been granted special access to the world of Queen Elizabeth II to produce this enthralling new portrait of one of the most popular public figures on earth. Not only has Elizabeth II reigned through Britain’s transformation from an imperial power to a multicultural nation, but she has also steered the monarchy through more reforms in the last twenty-five years than in the previous century. Queen Elizabeth II sits at the head of an ancient institution that remains simultaneously popular, regal, inclusive, and relevant in a twenty-first-century world. It is down to neither luck nor longevity: It is down to the shrewd judgment of a thoroughly modern monarchy—with no small assistance from the longest-serving consort in history. Here is the inside story. 
“At long last, we have the definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth’s world today. Robert Hardman knows the true story and tells it superbly.” —Andrew Roberts, author of The Storm of War “An intimate portrait of the Royal commitments at home and abroad. Provides an exceptional insight into the work of the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.” —BBC Entertainment “Simply magnificent. This gripping, fascinating and authoritative tour de force—covering the Queen herself, the power and the celebrity of Britain’s royalty with equal panache—gleams with a unique combination of insider anecdotes, deep knowledge, personal experience and superb storytelling by Britain’s outstanding royal observer.” —Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin

Robert Hardman has covered aspects of royal life for more than twenty years and is the writer of both the film and the book Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work. He writes for the Daily Mail in London.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2011 – Veteran journalist and royal observer Hardman (Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work) notes that Queen Elizabeth has always been quite visible on the global stage and one of the most respected figures in the modern world. Mining the usual sources and interviewing many who know the queen intimately, Hardman gathers fresh material and illuminating anecdotes, such as a little-known bizarre royal bust-up during a 1954 Australian tour when the queen hurld shoes and threats and sporting equipment at the duke of Edinburgh. BBC cameras captured the incident, but the film was destroyed on the spot. With wit and panache, Hardman unveils a prismatic portrait of a thoroughly modern monarch. 24 pages of color photos.

Customer Reviews

An Exceptional Read!!

I rarely if ever write book reviews. But this has been the most incredible biographical piece I've read. The detail of the queen's activities and responsibilities drastically changed my opinion of the monarchy and opened my eyes to what being the queen truly involves. Although it's a slow read at times due to the amount of detail, do take the time to read it all the way through. You won't regret it!
