The Queen: In Her Own Words Book


Queen Elizabeth II was a rock of stability in a turbulent changing world.

Revered for her calm dignity and sense of duty, the queen has rarely put a foot wrong in her 70 years - and counting - on the British throne. Her extraordinary reign saw sweeping changes: in 1953, the year of her Coronation, Winston Churchill was prime minister, Harry Truman President of the United States, and Joseph Stalin leader of the Soviet Union.

The queen rarely allowed her guard to slip, but beneath her calm and dignified manner lay a biting wit. Spanning eight decades, these wise, revealing and occasionally amusing reflections from Her Majesty make for an inspiring tribute to a remarkable woman. It's the perfect gift for any royal fan.
