In this warm and witty biography of Elizabeth II in her jubilee year, Ian Lloyd reveals the people, events and themes that have shaped her life and rule. 'I get enormously impressed when she walks into a room,' Princess Margaret once said of her sister. 'It's a kind of magic.' Prince William recalled, 'As I learned growing up, you don't mess with your grandmother. What she says goes.' It is often said that she has never put a foot wrong during her seven decades as monarch, and even those ideologically opposed to Britain and its governments have lauded her. Lloyd examines how the Queen has stayed true to the promise she made to the nation at the age of 21, 'that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service'.
