Rate this:
A beautifully illustrated celebration of a remarkable life. This handsome tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother - consort to George Vl, mother to Elizabeth II and an indomitable figure in her own right - comes with the backing of Britain's bestselling newspaper, The Daily Telegraph . Stunning photographs celebrate the Queen Mother's life year by year through a century of dynamic change while the text, by one of the Telegraph's leading writers, is authoritative and readable. In an incisive introduction, Hugh Massingberd describes the development of the young Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon into the royal bride who gave her husband, the Duke of York, the strength to take on the burden of kingship after the abdication of Edward VIII, and then worked magnificently at his side during the Second World War. Massingberd perceptively contrasts the rosy cliched image of 'the Queen Mum' with the reality of the much sharper and more sophisticated Queen Elizabeth. Through a series of deft and witty captions accompanying the splendid photographs, the story of Her Majesty's private and public life unfolds in a unique memorial to Britain's best-loved royal.
