The institution of monarchy in Britain is in deep crisis. Scarcely a day goes by without some new revelation about the private life of some or other of the Royals splashed all over the tabloid newspapers, and public interest in the House of Windsor is more feverish and obssessional than ever. This book takes the Queen seriously as the subject of historical biography, exmaining in depth the influences that formed her or the ideas she represents. In this work, Ben Pimlott treats the Head of State - who has been the rigorous and objective scrutiny he has applied to major political personalities, using a wide range of new sources, including interviews, diaries and letters, and papers in the Royal Archives.
