Book Synopsis



"Queen Elizabeth II once said, 'I have to be seen to be believed.' Well, here is Her Majesty in all her glory--and in delightful personal detail too. Victoria Murphy has created an invaluable photographic tribute to Britain's longest serving monarch and to her memorable reign." --Robert Lacey, historian and biographer

Since she succeeded to the throne in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has become respected, celebrated, and beloved around the world. This stunning collection of powerful images illustrates her storied reign in all its glory.

More than 300 extraordinary photographs, along with insightful commentary by the royal journalist Victoria Murphy, showcase the significant, historic, and intimate moments throughout the Queen's life, first as a young princess and then as the longest-reigning British monarch.

The book covers her war years in service; her marriage to Prince Philip; her coronation--the first to be televised; ​her extensive official travels around the world; the glittering diplomatic occasions and encounters with ​world leaders, dignitaries, and celebrities; the pomp and pageantry of ceremonial events; her role as a fashion icon; her relationships with her parents, King George VI and ​the Queen Mother, and her sister, Princess Margaret; the birth of her son and heir to the throne Prince Charles; family life with her four children and eight grandchildren, as well as her beloved dogs and horses; and the growing role of Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, as they support the Queen in her public duties.

Shown here too are the Crown Jewels as well as the Queen's personal jewelry collection; a look at the royal palaces and residences; and portraits from the stunning royal weddings that have so enchanted the world.

Throughout her reign, with a combination of star power and a profound sense of duty, Queen Elizabeth II has steered the British monarchy into the modern era with supreme style and grace. She is truly a queen for all ages.
