That said, this is a brave effort from Sarah Bradford, an sympathetic yet not hagiographic portrait of a woman who has left her mark on everyone's lives, aware of it or not. It is hard to understate the impact and importance of the Queen - she has served as a pillar of stability for the nation through thick and thin, a unifying figure above party, politics, creed or code. The one theme which emerges from this book, and one assumes the central theme of the Queen's life, is her dedication to duty, her awareness of the responsibilities of her position, the price royalty must pay for the privilege they enjoy. Elizabeth II is very much like her father in that, something I noticed all the more having read Bradford's biography of George VI immediately beforehand.
Which brings me to my one criticism of this book - almost the entire first quarter, effectively the entire period of Elizabeth's life up to her father's death, is almost identical to passages from Bradford's George VI.Read more ›
