Synopsis

2002 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Elizabeth II's accession to the throne, a golden jubilee that this book, written by BBC Royal Correspondent Jennie Bond, commemorates. On February 6, 1952, Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh, became Queen on the death of her father, King George VI. The reign that was to see major changes both in the country and Commonwealth and in the role of the monarchy began far away from Britain in a game reserve in Kenya. Elizabeth: Fifty Glorious Years, looks at this remarkable period in the history of Britain's monarchy in lavish and fascinating detail, featuring over 160 photographs. The personal life of Elizabeth, as princess and Queen, wife and mother, has been constantly under scrutiny ever since she took the throne. This book presents a balanced and absorbing account of the Queen's life and of her role as the head of state in a country and a world that have changed almost beyond recognition in the fifty years since she inherited the throne.

Jennie Bond joined the BBC in 1977 following five years as a newspaper reporter. She worked in the radio newsroom for a number of years and became a television reporter in 1988. She became Royal Correspondent in 1989 and has combined that with presenting the Six O'Clock News and other bulletins. She also presented the Today programme on Radio 4 for three years, but it is as Royal Correspondent that she has made her name. She gives talks about her work worldwide and on the ocean liner the QE2 and is a special contributor to Hello! magazine. She lives in London and Devon.
