The Queen 1926 - 2022
By Jack Harrison
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was Britain’s head of state for a remarkable seven decades.
She was revered for her steadfastness, admired for her dedication to her country, loved for her sense of humour and the way she put everyone she met at ease.
The Queen was, quite simply, one of a kind. She was a record breaker - her reign was the longest of any British monarch; she was the world’s oldest monarch; and she was the first British monarch to reach the age of 95. Not only that, her marriage to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, which lasted 73 years until his death in 2021, was the longest of any British sovereign.
In tribute to a truly remarkable queen - who was also a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother - this publication looks back on her fascinating life, the people she met, the places she visited, her family and her commitment to her country and Commonwealth.
This revised and updated edition, originally published as The Queen at 95, contains hundreds of carefully chosen images that mark her 70-year reign and pays tribute to her unwavering devotion to duty.
