THE QUEEN 70 Chapters in the Life of Elizabeth II
by Ian Lloyd
Hardback book. 319 pages. 29 Black & White illustrations.
Published on the Queen’s 96th birthday, just before the Platinum Jubilee in June 2022, this book features 70 chapters on the Queen’s life, using previously unpublished interviews with relatives, friends and courtiers. Royal biographer Ian Lloyd explores the Queen’s relationship with seven generations of the royal family, from the children of Queen Victoria to her own great-grandchildren. We see her encounters with celebrities and her adept handling of world leaders. Lloyd examines how the Queen has stayed true to the promise she made to the nation aged 21, ‘my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service’.
