Morton takes an in-depth look at Britain’s longest reigning monarch, exploring the influence Queen Elizabeth II has had on both Britain and the rest of the world for much of the last century, up until her recent death. Paid for by the Friends of the Hudson Library.
Ascending to the throne at 25, this self-effacing monarch navigated endless setbacks and family conflicts, as well as triumphs throughout her 70 years as the Queen of England. As her resolve was tested, she aimed to keep the monarchy relevant culturally, socially, and politically, often in the face of resistance from inside the institution itself. From supporting a nation struggling to restore itself after the devastation of the Second World War to navigating the divisive political landscape of the present day, Morton’s biography tells the story of a woman of unflagging self-discipline who will long be remembered as mother and grandmother to Great Britain, and one of the greatest sovereigns of the modern era.
Andrew Morton has written extensively on celebrity including biographies of Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, and Madonna, as well as members of the royal family such as, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Prince Andrew, and Meghan Markle. His New York Times bestselling biography, Diana: Her True Story, won international acclaim.
#1 New York Times bestselling biographer Andrew Morton provides the definitive, most comprehensive account of Queen Elizabeth II's legendary reign.
Painfully shy, Elizabeth Windsor’s personality was well suited to her youthful ambition of living quietly in the country, raising a family, and caring for her dogs and horses.
