Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving monarch in the world. With Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh by her side she has dealt with the complexities of life as a head of state, her duty to her country always her paramount concern. However, she is also a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Like any other woman, she cherishes time with her family, relaxing at home and enjoying holidays. This beautifully illustrated souvenir guide follows the Queen's family over five generations, from her life as a young girl with her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, right up to the present day and her youngest great-grandchildren. It also explores how the monarchy has evolved with the changing times to become a royal family more in touch with the demands and expectations of the modern world, not merely in the UK, but across the globe.
