The Book

When Princess Elizabeth became Queen on 6 February 1952, few could have anticipated that she would go on to become Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. Seventy years on, and Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will see the nation come together to celebrate a truly historic landmark. Featuring more than 250 photographs of Her Majesty from throughout her life, the official Platinum Jubilee Pageant book charts the trials and triumphs of The Queen’s 70 years on the throne and explores how Her Majesty has provided a lifetime of leadership; from her steadfast presence during the Second World War through to her unifying influence during our present turbulent times. 

Providing a unique window into Her Majesty’s decades of service, the book also features a select number of outstanding individuals and organisations from across the country and the Commonwealth.
