Product description


A bulging plum pudding of insider snippets in the Cecil Beaton tradition, with camp and catty asides laced with worldly wisdom... Vickers has done serious research in some important areas (Robert Lacey Sunday Times )

This is the first full-length biography - and who better to write it than Hugo Vickers... He is at home in the courtier's world and the circles which the Queen Mother inhabited... A very considerable achievement (Sarah Bradford Spectator )

A major new biography... Filled with telling anecdotes, it paints an affectionate yet revealing portrait (Daily Mail )

There is a small handful of British royal biographies which have acquired classic status... To this number must certainly be added Hugo Vickers's life of Elizabeth the Queen Mother. It is a truly magnificent book... Written with true authority. Hugo Vickers knows his subject through and through... A monumental record of why we all found the Queen Mother such a loveable and inspiring person, and why her pluck and her humour appealed to so wide a public (A.N. Wilson Country Life )

Witty and respectful . An overall portrait which may well be as close as anyone will ever get to the truth (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday )

Book Description

An authoritative and affectionate biography of the Queen Mother by a highly respected Royal biographer. (20040315)
