Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II

  • This event has passed.

Robert Hardman

Saturday 8th October 12:40 - 13:40 | Ballroom

Robert Hardman’s new biography of Queen Elizabeth II, based on a wealth of exclusive new material, brings us the full story of one of our greatest and best-loved monarchs as she celebrates her Platinum Jubilee. With original insights from family, friends and staff, new interviews with world leaders plus unseen photographs and papers, including diaries and letters from the Royal Archives, Hardman brings his long experience and expertise to this fresh, richly entertaining, and compelling portrait of a record-breaking monarch who remains as intriguing today as the morning she came to the Throne aged 25.

At every stage of this extraordinary story, Hardman brings fresh insights and perspectives: from hidden wartime secrets to the true inside story of historic royal reforms; untold highs and lows of family life; striking new insights into the Queen’s relations with her ministers and fellow world leaders; her strategy when confronted with family and constitutional crises from the early years right up to the dramas of the present day.
