Description

The Diamond Jubilee marks Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne, making her only the second British monarch in history – other than Queen Victoria – to achieve such a milestone, which will be marked with worldwide celebrations.

In fascinating words and picture, Royal Britain’s Diamond Jubilee magazine looks at the life of this very modern Queen from her birth in 1926 through to the present day (attending 2011’s marriage of her grandson Prince William to Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey), chronicling the many stages of an often-turbulent existence lived mainly in the public eye.

Presented in chronological order, chapters on The Queen’s early life include her father (subject of the hit movie, The King’s Speech) becoming King George VI upon the abdication of King Edward VIII.

We also have fascinating little known facts and images concerning a teenage Princess Elizabeth’s contribution to the War effort. Elsewhere you will find vivid word and picture portraits of the Queen’s 1953 Coronation Day, her marriage to Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, and her many Royal Visits, including to the USA and Canada, and other State Occasions.

Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee and Golden Jubilee celebrations are depicted here in a truly spectacular fashion using rare archive stills by top press photographers, and there are more intimate chapters on The Queen’s Fashion, her love of horse racing, the charities she supports, and of course her children and grandchildren.

– Elizabeth as a Child
– The War Years

– Coronation Day
