This much-acclaimed book by the American biographer, Sally Bedell Smith brings a fresh perspective to a meticulously researched account of the public and private lives of Queen Elizabeth II. Smith aims to portray the Queen 'in the round, in many different settings, surrounded by a great cast of characters' and she succeeds admirably in illuminating the lively sense of humour and keen intelligence with which Elizabeth II meets the most demanding work and obligations. American cut pages.
