Description - Royal: The Jubilee Edition by Robert Lacey
In 1977, Robert Lacey's bestselling "Majesty" offered a serious biography of Elizabeth II, defining the affection for the Queen that underlay the popular success of the Silver Jubilee. Now, on the 50th anniversary of her accession, "Royal" brings her remarkable story up to date. The volume provides a fresh portrait of her relationship with Prince Philip, and its effect on their children; it describes how the Queen has worked to live up to and maintain her strongly held beliefs, shaped over the years by the wishes and dreams - and sometimes the anger and unhappiness - of the people; and it explains how and why the monarchy continues to enjoy such enduring support. In addition, the Jubilee edition has been updated to reflect all the fast-changing events of the Jubilee year, specifically: the controversy over the work activities of Prince Edward and Sophie; Prince Harry's escapades with drink and drugs; the death of Princess Margaret; and the death of royal critic Lord Altrincham.
