The Queen: The Diamond Jubilee
Drawing on Debrett's unique authority and expertise in matters relating to the Royal Family, Debrett's The Queen: The Diamond Jubilee is a timely celebration of the Queen's life and sixty eventful years on the British throne.
With a Foreword by Sir John Major, The Queen: The Diamond Jubilee is a beautifully illustrated commemoration of the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, from her early years to her role as a modern monarch in the twenty-first century.
This book explores the Queen's genealogy, tracing her descent from William the Conqueror, her coat of arms and orders of chivalry.
It looks at her personal life, her childhood, teenage years, hobbies and pursuits, as well as her closest family ties: her mother, sister, husband, children, inlaws and grandchildren.
Her public life is also reviewed and celebrated, from
occasions to garden parties, walkabouts, ship-launchings and ribbon-cuttings, to her work with charities and presenting awards and honours.
The state occasions that have punctuated the Queen's life - her own wedding; her coronation; other royal weddings; state funerals; state openings of parliament; investitures and trooping the colour - are explored with insightful and gorgeous photographs.
Her style icon status is beautifully illustrated, and photographs and text explore her life-long love of dogs, horses, riding and country matters.
The Queen: The Diamond Jubilee is a touching, unique and beautiful book and a perfect way to remember and celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.
