Perfect for fans of The Crown, this "intimate portrait" of England's longest-reigning queen takes you behind the scenes of a thoroughly modern monarchy (BBC Entertainment).
History knows no monarch like her. She has traveled farther than all her predecessors combined, lived the longest of any of them, and known more historic figures—from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, Charles de Gaulle to Barack Obama—than anyone alive. Now, distinguished royal writer Robert Hardman has been granted special access to the world of Queen Elizabeth II in order to produce an unparalleled portrait of one of the most popular public figures on earth.
Arguably Britain's best-known observer of the royal family, Hardman follows Elizabeth's journey through her country's transformation from an imperial power to a multicultural nation; details a twenty-five-year period in which she steered the monarchy through more reforms than in the previous century; and interviews those closest to her, including her grandson Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
Written in celebration of Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, Her Majesty celebrates the head of an ancient institution that remains simultaneously popular, regal, inclusive, and relevant in a twenty-first-century world. "At long last, we have the definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth's world today," raves Andrew Roberts, author of The Royal House of Windsor. "Robert Hardman knows the true story and tells it superbly."
