Queen Elizabeth II Treasures
Written by the ITN Royal Correspondent, Tim Ewart, this beautifully illustrated book looks at the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II as she marks her Diamond Jubilee, only the second of Britain's monarchs to reach this anniversary of their accession to the throne. Unique in containing some 15 replica documents, many of which are from the Royal Archives, this fascinating book looks at how the Queen's reign has seen some of the most remarkable events in the history of the 20th and 21st centuries, while also maintaining traditions that link the United Kingdom of today with a history that stretches back over more than a thousand years. From royal tours to state visits, and from day-to-day engagements to notable family events and grand occasions, such as the Trooping of the Colour, "Queen Elizabeth: The Archives" is a delightful celebration of this rare historical occasion.
