ELIZABETH, THE QUEEN MOTHER

Synopsis

From her privileged aristocratic childhood, to the Abdication and the problems with Diana, Hugo Vickers - an acknowledged expert on the House of Windsor - observed the Queen Mother in public and private over a period of forty years. This book questions how she faced her challenges and crises, assesses her role and how she coped, and is a candid, personal portrait of one of Britain's most loved national treasures.
