Waterstones Says

Accompanying season three of the runaway Netflix hit, The Crown – The Official History provides invaluable background information to some of the key events of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Focusing on the years 1956 to 1977, Lacey’s accessible, pacy account tackles political crises and personal trauma to create a rounded portrait of a redoubtable monarch and the social fabric of the times.

The fascinating royal and social history that inspired Seasons 2 and 3 of The Crown, written by the show's historical consultant. In this incredible companion to the second and third seasons of Netflix's acclaimed series The Crown, renowned biographer and the show's historical consultant Robert Lacey takes us through the real history that inspired the drama. Covering two tumultuous decades in the reign of Elizabeth II, Lacey looks at the key social, political and personal moments and the effect they had not only on the royal family, but also on the world around them. From the Suez Canal Crisis and the US/Russia space race to the Duke of Windsor's collaboration with Hitler and the rumoured issues with the royal marriage, the book will provide a fascinating insight into the two decades that the show covers, revealing the truth behind the fiction on-screen.

Extensively researched and complete with beautifully reproduced photographs, this is a unique look behind the history that inspired the show and the years that would prove to be the making of The Queen.
