Very tastefully done. Nice photographs, lovely quotes, not an over abundance of text.

Covers the history of the Monarchy back to 1066 & William the Conqueror with genealogical charts. Talks about the reigns of both Elizabeths & compares their rules. Covers her childhood, family, politics, state visits, her Prime Ministers, charities, and her meetings with the common people.
