Elizabeth: Queen and Crown by Sarah Gristwood

An internationally admired figure, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the most high-profile monarch in the world, enjoying enduring and wide-ranging popularity.

Spanning from 1926 to the present day, Elizabeth The Queen and the Crown reveals the story behind Britain's longest-reigning monarch's extraordinary life. Sarah Gristwood follows the twists and turns of Her Majesty's life and its key turning points - including her teenage years during World War II, meeting and marrying Prince Philip of Greece, later the Duke of Edinburgh, and her accession to the throne in 1952.

Split into chapters covering different periods of her life, from 'Apprenticeship (1926-1956)', 'Being Queen (1956-1986)' to 'Change, Celebration and Commemoration (1986-2022)', the book charts the extraordinary events in the Queen's life alongside the everyday duties of her role as monarch.

Originally published in 2017, this book has been updated for the Platinum Jubilee in 2022, illustrated with historic photography that makes it as beautiful to own as enjoyable to read.
