She has travelled further and lived longer than any of her predecessors. She has known more historic figures than anyone alive - from Churchill to Mandela, de Gaulle to Obama. Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most popular public figures on Earth. In Robert Hardman's portrayal of our Queen he travels around the world with her and meets her family, as she marks sixty years on the throne. Elizabeth II has reigned through Britain's transformation from an imperial power to a multicultural, multimedia nation. Our Queen sits at the head of an ancient institution, which remains - simultaneously - popular, regal, inclusive and relevant. This is purely down to the shrewd judgement of a thoroughly modern monarch with no small assistance from the longest-serving consort in history.

About the Author:

ROBERT HARDMAN has been writing about the Monarchy for more than 15 years, first as royal correspondent for The Daily Telegraph and now as the author of the "How I See It" column in the Daily Mail. During a distinguished Fleet Street career, he has also been, among other things, a political sketchwriter, a diarist, a sports columnist and a restaurant critic. His royal interviews have included Prince Philip, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, the King and Queen of Norway, the Queen of Denmark and the ex-King of Afghanistan. He is the writer and associate producer of the BBC1 series A Year with the Queen, which accompanies this book. He did the same for BBC1's acclaimed 2005 series, The Queen's Castle. Educated at Wellington and Cambridge, he lives in London.
