About this title

Synopsis:

A court insider's portrait of Elizabeth II and her eventful and turbulent reign journeys beyond the facade of Buckingham Palace to answer questions about the scandal-ridden royals, relationships among members of her family, her personal beliefs, and future prospects for the House of Windsor. Tour.

Review:

"There are two types of British queens," says Columbia University historian David Cannadine. There are those who hold the position strictly as wife of the king, such as Queen Caroline, the subject of a recent biography by Flora Fraser. Then there are those few who have ruled as sovereign in absence of a male heir. Among them, Queen Elizabeth II, who has ruled since the death of her father, George VI, in 1952. In her seven decades of life, she has witnessed the gradual decline of British importance and endured the public collapse of the marriages of her children. Yet she has visited more of the world than any sovereign in human history and lent dignity to her office.
