She was never born to be a queen. A quirk of history changed her destiny. At an age when most women are settling down as young wives and mothers, she was suddenly thrust into the role of the most important woman on the world’s stage.
Queen Elizabeth II not only found for herself a unique place in the hearts of millions, she proved a noble and worthy successor in the pageantry of British Royalty. During the thirty-four years since she came to the throne the Queen has ruled over most dramatic moments in the story of Britain and the Commonwealth.
She is still the link today between nations of differing cultures and political systems. Loved and respected not only by her own subjects, but by other nations who long ago lost, or abandoned, their own monarchies. She has become Queen to the World.
As she celebrates her sixtieth birthday this book pays a tribute to her in words and pictures. Most of the pictures are in colour, some of them the earliest ever taken of Her Majesty. Among the illustrations are photographs from the Queen’s own collection. That are reproduced with her own gracious permission.
Tribute to Her Majesty covers Her Majesty’s life from childhood, through marriage and motherhood to her fascinating life today.
