A gorgeously photographed celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 60 magnificent years as British Sovereign
With the exception of Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-serving monarch in British history, acknowledged worldwide for the myriad of duties she has performed with grace and dignity. This special souvenir guide, illustrated lavishly throughout with color photographs, looks at every aspect of the life of one of the world's most beloved monarchs—from her childhood and teenage years in the company of her sister, Princess Margaret, to her role as Heir Presumptive, her engagement and marriage to the Duke of Edinburgh, her accession, coronation, and even her passion for horses and the other country pursuits she enjoys in her rare "off-duty" moments. Also included are pertinent details about her duties as queen, such as working with charities, attending the State Opening of Parliament, and taking part in fascinating traditional ceremonies such as the Royal Maundy, the Trooping the Color, the colorful Garter Ceremony, and the Remembrance Day service.
