Going through the Queen's life so far, up to the point of the Platinum Jubilee, Andrew Morton offers up first hand accounts and supplementary information for the events we have experienced during the reign of Elizabeth II. It gives some insights into the dynamics between different family members across generations which was the bit I really enjoyed. I have tried not to read the tabloids with regards to the Royal Family for many years and whilst this book is not endorsed by 'The Firm' as far as I know, it seems to have more substance than the tabloids.

I reali sono stati un fascino di molti e questo libro sarebbe un grande ricordo per qualsiasi fan o seguace della monarchia. Elizabeth was set firmly on the road to becoming sovereign because of the D word – divorce. In 1936, her uncle David, King Edward VIII, wanted to marry a twice-divorced American, Wallis Simpson. When he couldn’t, he abdicated. After that national trauma, divorce and the fall-out from divorce shaped her reign. She witnessed her sister Margaret, three of her children and several grandchildren divorce. And she lived long enough to see the wheel turn full circle, watching as another American divorcee, Meghan Markle, walked down the aisle with her grandson Prince Harry. As co-owner of Trident Studios, Norman Sheffield found himself in the company of legends. David Bowie recorded Space Oddity at the facility, while the Beatles laid down Hey Jude there, and it is, of course, where Queen recorded the lion’s share of their debut album.
The Times Queen Elizabeth II: Commemorating her life and
It was a more digestible read than I was expecting. Books like this are usually hard going for me with information overload but this one works. Like most biographies of very well known, high profile people, much of the Queen’s story feels familiar – particularly if you are a fan of The Crown.I can definitely see that this isn't a book to everyones tastes especially based on their leanings but if you are willing to remove her title and her work you willl read a story that spans recent history. Its a wonderful look ito how an ancient idea (a ruling monarchy) evolved into the 20th century and managed to maintain it's relevance.
