Summary, etc.:
In the first all-round, up-close picture of one of the most fascinating, enigmatic and admired women in the world, readers finally get to meet the real Queen. With exclusive access to her personal letters, close friends and associates, this intimate biography is a treasure trove of fresh insights on her public persona and private life. It also explores her close relationships with Prince Philip, her children, and her headline-grabbing grandchildren, William and Harry. Here we see Queen Elizabeth going about her daily duties, preparing for formal occasions, playing with her children at the Palace, crawling on her stomach to stalk deer, donning yellow Marigolds to wash up after Balmoral cookouts. In these pages we at last get to meet the leader, strategist, and diplomat; the daughter, wife, mother and grandmother-Elizabeth the Queen.
