With Queen's Birthday weekend coming up and all the celebrations for HM's Diamond Jubilee, it brings out the royalist in one. Found this book on our processing shelves. Historian Kate Williams tells the story of the Queen's life up until her coronation. Her rather carefree childhood, the furore over the abdication of her uncle then her life as heir to the throne.
