In 1977 Queen Elizabeth II celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of her accession to the throne. Her Silver Jubilee is of course an important, historic event (only four monarchs have achieved this distinction since 1714), and it is appropriate that this beautiful book has been publishes to commemorate the occasion.

Patrick Montague-Smith carefully documents the key events that lead up to Elizabeth's accession to the throne on 6th February 1952, and the he presents his analysis of the twenty-five year reign/ He also provides profiles of Prince Philip, the royal children and the Queen Mother.

Over 200 photographs, 40 in full colour, have been carefully researched and selected to illustrate this book; the Duke of Norfolk has written the Foreward; and a special [pictorial family tree has been devised for those interested in tracing the descent of Elizabeth and Philip from Queen Victoria.

This Book represents the perfect commemorative publication for all those proud of the achievement of our reigning monarch and happy to share in the celebratory events of the Silver Jubilee.
