Waterstones Says

Gathering together all 70 of Queen Elizabeth II's Christmas speeches in one handsomely produced volume alongside half a dozen other key speeches from her reign, The Platinum Queen is both celebration of our longest-serving monarch and fascinating chronicle of post-war British history.

Published in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee, The Platinum Queen presents seven decades of world history through the words of Britain's longest-reigning monarch: over 256 exquisitely designed pages, packed with 130 photos and featuring every single major speech given over the course of Her Majesty's time on the throne, a foreword by Jennie Bond and historical context to each decade.

For the first time, all 70 of the Queen's Christmas speeches are published together in full, along with six additional feature speeches made at significant points in her life.

Organised by decade, each chapter opens with a narrative essay on the key events that follow, providing an important contextual backdrop to the speeches. From times of national and global turmoil - including wars, terror attacks and health crises - to times of joy - such as the new millennium and Olympics - The Platinum Queen is a testament to Elizabeth's unwavering resolve, faith and dedication to her role.
