The Woman and the Queen

Book - 2001
Rate this:
Graham Turner has had access to the Royal Family and their inner circle for almost a decade. In this intimate biography of Elizabeth II, he aims to show the flesh-and-blood woman. He takes us behind the scenes to describe the sometimes raw reality of her relationship with Prince Philip and the influence of the Queen Mother. He analyses how she deals with her own children and asks how good a mother she has been and if she has successfully juggled family and work. Turner also gives rare glimpses behind the formality, showing the Queen on holiday at Sandringham and Balmoral - where she might serve dinner and clear the table.
