Summary
On today's world stage, there is one leader who stands apart from the rest. Queen Elizabeth II has seen more of the planet and its people than any other head of state and has engaged with the world like no other monarch in modern history.The iconic monarch never ventured further than the Isle of Wight until the age of 20 but since then has now visited over 130 countries across the globe in the line of duty, acting as diplomat, hostess and dignitary as the world stage as changed beyond recognition. It is a story full of drama, intrigue, exotic and sometimes dangerous destinations, heroes, rogues, pomp and glamour, but at the heart of it all a woman who's won the hearts of the world.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Having recently surpassed Queen Victoria as the longest-reigning monarch in British history, the present queen is generally accorded the distinction of being the most recognized figure in the world. To refer to this surprisingly wide-ranging, complete appraisal of Her Majesty and her significant role and function in not only British society but also in the world order as a "biography" is to employ a label too restrictive and, frankly, off the mark. From the outset, royals expert Hardman, who has exceptional access to Queen Elizabeth II and her family, stresses the uniqueness of the monarch. The queen has made it her goal, in her quiet but steady and determined fashion, to redefine the "role of Britain and the monarchy itself in a post-imperial world of equals." Hardman insightfully addresses her royal tours, state visits of foreign leaders to London, her leadership in the evolution of her position as head of the Commonwealth, her participation in the special relationship with the U.S., and the role of the royal yacht, Britannia, in spreading the goodwill of the queen globally. Hardman also contrasts the character and personality of the queen and her son, the Prince of Wales. Throughout, Hardman's analysis is discerning, knowledgeable, and fascinating.--Brad Hooper Copyright 2018 Booklist"
