On 2 June 1953, 27-year-old Princess Elizabeth of York was crowned Queen, the eyes of the world upon her as she dedicated herself to her country. It is fascinating to look back over the 60 years since then and see how this remarkable woman, decade by decade, has brought the monarchy into the modern world, earning admiration and respect for her unerring sense of duty, her determination to innovate, her tremendous dignity, integrity, and wisdom. Drawing from his own experience and time spent with the royal family, alongside additional meticulous research, Alan Titchmarsh observes the woman, the mother, and the monarch. He explores key moments in her reign, both personal to her and in a wider historical context, and traces how the public's relationship with the royal family has developed and morphed, gone through ups and downs, but is arguably now stronger than ever in this very special Diamond Jubilee year. Packed with wonderful memorabilia and rarely seen archive photography, Elizabeth: Her Life, Our Times defines an era, pays tribute to the inexhaustable Queen, and celebrates the example of responsibility, loyalty, and patriotism she has set for generations past, present, and future.
