Product Description

Product Description

Queen Elizabeth II is the most famous woman in the world – but she is also the most private. Now, to mark her sixtieth year on the throne, royal expert Brian Hoey takes a searching look at Her Majesty’s long reign, at her likes and dislikes, her triumphs and disappointments, and at what drives this most extraordinary of individuals. Using unrivalled access to those closest to the royal family, Hoey uncovers the principles and convictions, quirks and foibles that define The Queen and her family. Affectionate anecdote is combined with impartial analysis to provide an enthralling glimpse into the life of a woman who has earned both global respect and the admiration of her subjects. The last ten years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign have been no less eventful than any other decade: two wars, recession and royal marriage have all made their mark as The Queen prepares to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee. Yet, as this lively, authoritative and revealing account makes clear, Her Majesty continues to display a resolute determination to steer her country on the right course – to protect her people, the Commonwealth and, perhaps above all, the institution of monarchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new look at the Queen 21 July 2013
By JONJORJ - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I openly admit to being an ardent Royalist, and I do buy many books about the Royal Family. Sometimes I am disappointed, maily because they are all similar, just a different Author, same story.
This one was different, new material, written to make the reader think "what would it be like being the Queen" Yes, they live in luxury, but, if you were working basically every day, and the Queen does, at 87 she is probably the most amazing person in the World.
If you have any interest in the British Royal Family, this book is one you will love
