The finest short life of the monarch, by the ‘founding father’ of contemporary royal biography fully updated to within a month of publication. For more than thirty-five years Robert Lacey has been gathering stories from the members of the Queen’s inner circle – her friends, relatives, private secretaries and former prime ministers – and the results are distilled in this elegant hardback. Tracing her life through its major stages, and uncovering her greatest personal loves and trials, A Brief Life of the Queen offers the freshness of the first-hand insights and compelling storytelling for which Robert Lacey’s bestselling biographies are renowned.

A succinct, personal and beautifully illustrated biography of Elizabeth II, who has managed to remain an enigma, despite being the most recognised woman in the world. AUTHOR: Robert Lacey is a British historian noted for his in-depth research and page-turning narrative style. He is the author of several international bestsellers including Majesty, The Kingdom: Arabia and the House of Saud and Great Tales from English History.

He is the historical consultant to the award-winning Netflix series The Crown, and author of The Official Companion to the Crown.
