On Mother’s Day, I was gifted with the DVD set of the television series, The Crown, along with Sally Bedell Smith’s biography, Elizabeth the Queen. After watching the first episode of The Crown, I began to read from Elizabeth the Queen.
Elizabeth the Queen is authored in a narrative style, with the author giving you a personal glimpse into the life of the United Kingdom’s longest reigning monarch.
The author covers the life of Elizabeth II from her birth in 1926 to the present day.
The biography contains quotes pertaining to Elizabeth II, along with a photographic spread of Elizabeth II and her family throughout the biography.
It is interesting to note, author Sally Bedell Smith was given the opportunity to obtain an up close and personal study of her subject. To read more about the author’s experience, please click on this link, http://www.randomhouse.com/rhpg/rc/tag/elizabeth-the-queen
Elizabeth the Queen and The Crown are a duo which complement one another to tell the story of the girl named Lilibet who would one day become queen.
