This might be more about the Royal Family than I ever wanted to know--although the parts about Prince Philip were interesting.

The book was okay not worth a re read in my opinion. The only interesting parts to me where about prince Phillip. The book spent lots of time discussing him rather then Elizabeth. Elizabeth is very interesting and I expected to learn more about her then just her ongoing disapproval of her children. I feel like a expert on Phillip now. Overall the book was interesting last 100 pages were a bit boring though.
I recently went to London for the first time and I was watching a PBS special on the Queen and she intrigued me. In this book, the Queen's life (up until about 1996 anyway) was chronicled. Her childhood, marriage, rise to the throne and her family. Wow, those royals are a bunch of wacky people. I don't think she's a very warm person or anything (British reserve) but frankly it sucks to be her.

One of the best books on the British Royal Family and on Queen Elizabeth in particular.

Reading this book one can see that Mr. Davies is quite knowledgeable and has done his homework where researching the subject is concerned.

Queen Elizabeth may not be easily amused - and she has every right not to be - but I certainly was highly amused and entertained.
This book, published in 1994, was just a little too dated to enjoy. It did make me see very clearly how difficult it must be to live the life of a "royal" in England despite all our american romanticized ideas.
This book was so obviously biased. Not uninterested, but biased and could have been written better. I would recommend finding a book on the Queen that will be factual, AND unbiased.
