Waterstones Says

Drawing on records of conversations and meetings the author and raconteur had with Elizabeth II, Brandreth delivers a moving, intimate portrait of the much-missed monarch, laced with his trademark gentle humour and unfailing eloquence.

A personal account of the life and character of Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

This intimate, personal biography of Queen Elizabeth II tells the story of her remarkable life, reign and times, from a perspective unlike any other. Gyles Brandreth writes the Queen's tale candidly with grace and sensitivity from the view of someone who met her, talked with her and kept a record of those conversations. Brandreth knew the Queen's husband well and knows the new King and Queen Consort.

Told with authority, a refreshing dose of humour and moving honesty from a totally unique viewpoint, Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait is the must-have biography of the longest-serving monarch in English history, of a woman who represented not only her people but stood as an emblem of fortitude and resilience worldwide throughout her long life. Elizabeth II - what was she really like? What made her the person she was?
