Crown & Sceptre: A New History of the British Monarchy from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II

  • This event has passed.

Tracy Borman

Thursday 6th October 15:20 - 16:20 | Ballroom

This year, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 70th year on the British throne – her Platinum Jubilee – by far the longest reign of any British monarch. Inspired by this momentous event, Tracy Borman’s latest book, Crown & Sceptre, explores the tumultuous history of the British monarchy. With 1,000 years of royal history from 1066 to the present day, Domesday Book to Magna Carta, the Field of Cloth of Gold to Prince Harry’s wedding, the book tells the real story of this iconic institution. In this illustrated talk, Borman will introduce some of her favourite monarchs and share a few of the secrets behind the crown’s remarkable survival.
