As a Getty Images royal photographer, Chris Jackson has been granted privileged access to the monarch and the British royal family. He has documented the Queen s official engagements over the past two decades, during a period of seismic changes in the British monarchy. In photographs documenting public and private moments, and accompanied by warm and engaging text offering a personal perspective and behind-the-shot anecdotes, Jackson captures the Queen s great elegance and charm. From royal tours to hosting state dinners, this book takes us to the heart of what it means to be the head of the British royal family. Much has been made of the Queen s enduring style, and here a spotlight also is shone on the coats, dresses, evening gowns, jewels, bags, and accessories that make up the Queen s coordinated wardrobe. Uniting all that is British as an ambassador and statesperson, Queen Elizabeth II has seen more of the planet and its people than any other head of state, and has engaged with them like no other monarch in British history; she is unquestionably a global voice for our time.
