A commemorative picture book celebrating the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II, ideal for sharing with readers aged 8+. Follow Her Majesty's journey from a young princess growing up in wartime to an extraordinary leader - the longest-reigning British monarch in history.

This very special illustrated book is the perfect way to share the Queen's life story with younger readers - from her childhood and service during the Second World War to the magnificent coronation and even a daredevil stunt at the London Olympics. Climb aboard the royal yacht Britannia, meet the 15 prime ministers she counselled and remember her wisdom to the nation and the whole Commonwealth through her Christmas broadcasts.

And that's not all: during her seventy-year reign, Her Majesty truly witnessed it all - from colour television and Beatlemania to the birth of the internet. This commemorative book records not just the royal spectacles, but the entire Elizabethan age.

From award-winning, bestselling author Smriti Prasadam-Halls, with beautiful illustrations from Josie Shenoy and Kim Geyer, this is a stunning tribute to the remarkable legacy of a much-loved queen. With a shimmering gold foil cover and plenty of quotes from the Queen herself, you'll treasure the book for years to come - in the reign of King Charles III.
