Showcasing an extensive collection of more than 400 fascinating images, The Queen at 90: A Life in Pictures takes readers through the people, the places and the moments that have shaped the life of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, was born at 17 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London, on April 21, 1926.
The monarchy, the nation and the world have changed dramatically since then, yet Elizabeth has remained a beacon of consistency and stability throughout – first as a princess, then as Queen.
Having spent more than seven decades by the Queen’s side, travelling the world undertaking a variety of engagements, Prince Phillip has become an iconic figure within Britain’s royal family.
This book celebrates the Duke, his role and his achievements in this colourful, picture-packed bookazine.
