Product description

Review

'Andrew Marr's absorbing new book leaves no doubt about the pivotal role played by the Queen herself . . . As a leading broadcaster, Marr has been able to watch the Queen at first hand, and the more he has seen of her the more impressed he has become. As you would expect, he is particularly acute on the political aspects of constitutional monarchy, but he also writes perceptively about individual members of the Royal Family, notably Prince Philip' --Mail on Sunday - 4 star review

'Next year's Diamond Jubilee will be marked by a clutch of royal biographies. Marr's line as a former political journalist guarantees that his own offering does not simply sink in the sea of sugary platitudes.' --Express

'Both Andrew Marr and Robert Hardman are serious students of their subject. Both write well and thoughtfully . . . both books contain a lot of information which will be new . . . Marr is particularly interesting on the relationship between the Queen and the BBC . . . So which to read? If you want what is primarily a biography, go for Marr. If it is the institution that interests you, go for Hardman. If you are an enthusiastic monarchy-watcher, read both.'
--Philip Ziegler, the Spectator

`Books of quality are appearing in advance of next year's Diamond Jubilee...Andrew Marr approached the subject as a former (youthful) republican won over in The Diamond Queen.' --Hugo Vickers, The Lady --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

Political journalist Andrew Marr's vivid account of the Queen and her reign over Great Britain and the Commonwealth.
