This review is from: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother: The Official Biography (Hardcover)
William Shawcross had done this country a huge service by this book. It serves to remind us how unbelievably lucky we are to have a Monarchy, the crucial role it has played in this country's recent history and why we must do all we can to defend it. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother was a much-loved figure, but this book demonstrates brilliantly just why she meant as much as she did to us all. It charts her life, her joys, her sadnesses and so it charts the nation's life, its joys and its sadnesses. I defy anyone not to weep as they read of The King's death and then her own. How blessed we were that King George VI accended the throne and so she became our Queen and gave us our present Queen and our next King, The Prince of Wales.
