From the author of the critically acclaimed Victoria comes a celebration of the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II.

In this original and vibrant examination of the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II, biographer and novelist A.N. Wilson paints a vivid portrait of 'Lilibet' the woman, and of her reign. He also considers the history of the monarchy, drawing a line that stretches from Queen Victoria to the bloody history of Europe in the twentieth century, examining how and why the Royal Family has survived.

In part historical overview, but with a keen eye to the future, Wilson writes with his signature warmth, intelligence, and humor, celebrating the life of the Queen and her role as figurehead of Britain and the Commonwealth.
