Description


Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Queen: The extraordinary public and private life of the world's most famous monarch Born in 1926, married in 1947, crowned as Queen in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II has carried out her royal duty for more than six decades. This book tells her remarkable royal story through hundreds of stunning photographs, many published here for the first time.

Brimming with history, politics, glamour, culture, world travel, and such icons of their age as the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe, and JFK, these photographs cover every aspect of the Queen's reign. Sourced from archives around the world, including the Royal Collection itself, they cover Her Majesty's early years, her coming of age during World War II, becoming a wife, Queen and mother, the international tours, the state functions, the palaces, the crowds, the weddings, the Royal Family, the Silver Jubilee in 1977, as well as more recent years of her steadfast reign.

Featured photographers include: Cecil Beaton, Studio Lisa, Dorothy Wilding, Karsh, Lord Snowdon, Patrick Lichfield, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rankin, and Annie Leibovitz. Text in English, French, and German.
