The definitive biography of the Queen that reveals the real woman behind the public figure. Sarah Bradford unravels Elizabeth's family secrets - how she was influenced by her father; her troubled relationships with her children; the story of her difficult marriage; and how this remarkable monarch has coped with the pressures of being a mother who is also the most famous woman in the world. 'The only book that could overtake it is the autobiography, which in this case will never be written' Spectator

User Review  - Stephen Coleman - Goodreads

This was a long book that took me a long time to finish but one that I enjoyed. Its easy to take many things for granted in our modern world, our Queen included. This gave me a bit more of an insight into the Royal world. Read full review
