Publisher's Summary

There have been some truly awful monarchs in British history. How about one who, according to Historian Robert Wilton, psychologically "barely made it out of infancy, let alone adolescence, and ruled with little more policy than petulant self-gratification". That was Henry VIII - the wife murdering, religion destroying despot, depending, of course, on your point of view. Edward VIII also comes out poorly in a review of historical writers, although others might argue that he was somebody who put love before the monarchy, and it was more the prevailing times that were misguided. Queen Elizabeth II, however, is up there with the best royal ruler of any era. Whilst longevity inevitably contributes to our warmth for the Queen, there is more to her enduring popularity than this. This audiobook will look at the life, and family of this truly amazing monarch. It will look at the hardships and the high-times that Queen Elizabeth and her family have been through.
