The Queen and Crown
A non fiction book by

An internationally admired figure Queen Elizabeth II is the most high-profile monarch in the world, and her enduring popularity is tantamount to her wide-ranging supporters. Spanning from 1927 to present day, Elizabeth reveals the details of Britain's longest-reigning monarch's extraordinary life.Sarah Gristwood follows the twists and turns of Elizabeth Windsor's life and its key turning points - including her teenage years during the war, meeting and marrying the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip Mountbatten, and her ascension to the throne in 1952.Split into chapters each covering 30 years, we plot the extraordinary events in the Queen's life alongside the everyday duties of her role as monarch. Later chapters Being Queen and Change and Celebration outline what it means to be Queen, her pastoral work and official duties, and finally examines the Queen's Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Wedding and what is to come next for the royal family. This will be the most up-to-date biography of the Queen available, illustrated with archival photography that make it as beautiful to own as enjoyable to read.
