A Queen for All Seasons: A Celebration of Queen Elizabeth II (Paperback)Joanna Lumley (author)
Joanna Lumley brings a personal warmth and genuine affection to this touching portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Published to mark her Platinum Jubilee and tracing her life from the early 1950s to the present day in words and pictures, it is a beautifully presented celebration of an extraordinary life of service.
In 2022 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated seventy years as Queen and Head of the Commonwealth. She was Britain's longest reigning monarch and the very first to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
A Queen for All Seasons is a perceptive, touching and engaging tribute to this unique woman: a treasure chest of first-hand writings, insights and snapshots of The Queen during key moments of her reign.
Joanna Lumley guides us as we meet Princess Elizabeth in 1952, aged just twenty-five, and about to become Queen, and brings us through to the twenty-first century when, in the role of matriarch, The Queen kept the national ship steady through seven decades, including in moments of crisis and suffering. Together this forms a vibrant portrait of the woman herself and the extraordinary role she played.
