Product description

Review

The essential authoritative biography of the Queen that everyone needs to read - packed with new research, gripping details and telling anecdotes on every page, equally masterful on matters high and low, power and family. Hardman not only explains her; he defines her and her epoch. ― Simon Sebag Montefiore

Robert Hardman has written a truly exceptional biography of an equally exceptional monarch, rich in new material, wit and original thought. With intimate and unrivalled access to those who really know the story, Queen of Our Times not only gives us the real Elizabeth II, but it also reminds us, often movingly, that we are living through one of history’s greatest reigns. ―
Andrew Roberts

A compendious new biography . . . closely observed . . . I relished the incidental details. ―
The Times (Book of the Week)

Hardman’s exhaustive and endlessly enthusiastic biography paints a vivid picture of a phenomenal sovereign. ―
The Telegraph

Authoritative . . . scrupulously well researched, thoughtful and sensitive to the sweep of history. ―
Mail on Sunday

Revelatory . . .
Queen of Our Times shows why her extraordinary lifetime of service should be celebrated, honoured and cherished. -- William Shawcross ― The Spectator
