‘Lovely… delivers the warmest of glows’ – Telegraph ‘Who wouldn’t love this chocolate-box delight of insights and snapshots of The Queen…A treasure chest’ – Good Housekeeping In 2022 Queen Elizabeth II celebrated seventy years as Queen and Head of the Commonwealth. She was Britain’s longest reigning monarch and the very first to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.
A Queen for All Seasons is a perceptive, touching and engaging tribute to this unique woman: a treasure chest of first-hand writings, insights and snapshots of The Queen during key moments of her reign and life, through to her death in September 2022. Joanna Lumley guides us as we meet Princess Elizabeth in 1952, aged just twenty-five, and about to become Queen, and brings us through to the twenty-first century when, in the role of matriarch, The Queen kept the national ship steady through seven decades, including in moments of crisis and suffering. Together this forms a vibrant portrait of the woman herself and the extraordinary role she played.
