Unique in containing replica documents, this fascinating, sumptuously packagedbook looks at how the Queens reign has seen some of the most remarkable events in the history of the 20th and 21st centuries, while also maintaining traditions that link the United Kingdom of today with a history that stretches back over more than a thousand years. Written by the ITN Royal Correspondent, it looks at the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II as she marks her Diamond Jubilee, and contains replicas of such items as an original draft of the speech she made at 14, the first time she had been heard in public; the marriage certificate of Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh; a letter to President Eisenhower in which she included her recipe for scones; a menu for a 2007 dinner given by President Bush in honor of the Queens State visit; and many more. From royal tours to state visits, and from day-to-day engagements to notable family events and grand occasions, such as the Trooping of the Colour, this is a delightful celebration ofa rare historical occasion."
