Waterstones Says

Looking back through her long life on the eve of her Platinum Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II reflects on the pivotal moments that made her the monarch - and the woman - that she is today, in Wilson's lovingly crafted work.

The moments in life of "knowing". On Bognor Beach, with Grandpa England, she had "known" that he, and Papa, and she, would carry something on, something given, something bigger than themselves. Lilibet: a carefree child, a lover of horses and dogs, devoted to her family. And the girl who would be Queen.

A.N. Wilson, one of England's most beloved writers, imagines the Queen on the eve of her platinum jubilee. We watch as she discovers, at the tender age of ten, that she is heir to the throne. We witness her meet the dashing Prince Phillip of Greece, who she loved steadfastly from the age of fifteen, and see their friendship blossom into passionate love. Above all, we learn of her astonishing sense of vocation and public duty, which grew during the dark years of WWII and her father's subsequent years of ill health.

By turns funny, tender and tragic, Lilibet: The Girl Who Would be Queen honours our beloved monarch and her illustrious reign.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Wilson, our supreme literary operator, is to be praised for this superb distillation, which is much more perceptive than the lumpy official biographies. -- Roger Lewis * Sunday Telegraph *
It's packed with detail and conversations that bring to life all those who have been most important to her. -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail *
Much to learn and admire... [A] right royal curiosity -- Alex O'Connell * The Times *

“A nice reading but HRH instead of HM for the Queen ?”

This is a good book to accompany our little one or may be grown up to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. The only thing that may be missed by the editor or the publisher to check is 'the blue stamp' on the... More
