Ms Bedell Smith takes us places other 'biographers' do not. For example, I have long been curious about the Queen's private visit to America to a stud farm in Kentucky. How did a woman, used to a Palace and servants, adapt? Well, here is the answer. And it is entertaining to read. Also, I did not know before reading this that Her Majesty has made FIVE private visits to the USA. The hacks did not report it, perhaps because they did not know.
The author has a sure, light touch with language. This is no mere recital of facts.
Other biographies of the Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year are getting more publicity and more hype, but when the years roll past I bet it will be this book that stands out. Sadly too, it will become one of the standard texts that will be pillaged in the future by Royal 'experts.'
i had read sarah bradfords book and robert hardmans i found this to be the best
