  • $19.96

For millions of people, both in Britain and across the world, Elizabeth II is the embodiment of monarchy. Her long life spans nearly a century of national and global history, from before the Great Depression to the era of Covid-19. Her reign embraces all but seven years of Britain's postwar history; she has been served by 15 UK prime ministers from Churchill to Johnson and witnessed the administrations of 13 US presidents from Truman to Trump. The vast majority of Britons cannot remember a world without Elizabeth II as head of state and the Commonwealth.

In this new biography of the longest-reigning sovereign in British history, author Matthew Dennison traces her life and reign across an era of unprecedented and often seismic social change. The Queen charts the joys and triumphs as well as the disappointments and vicissitudes of a remarkable royal life. Champion a handful of 'British' values: service, duty, steadfastness, charity, and stoicism.
