Granted unprecedented access to the Royal Family, their friends and advisers, Grania Forbes has produced a unique portrait of the formative years of one of the nation's favourite Royals. After a decade as one of only two journalists accredited to Buckingham Palace and twenty years recording Royal events, Grania Forbes has produced this extraordinary biography of The Queen Mother. Using material hidden for decades in the archives of family and friends, she captures the essence of the young Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon. We hear of the strong-willed little girl's pranks. We see her in the glittering twenties earning herself the title of 'the best dancer in London'. And we learn of her first meeting with the Duke of York and the long courtship that led to a happy marriage.
