Autobiography of the Queen, The Summary


In this true-to-life account of the Queen's disappearance, we learn of the monarch's journey (Upper Class Virgin Atlantic) to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, where she has bought a house off-plan. Here, after more than half a century on the throne, she will recall the years of her reign in peace and tranquillity. But the house is no more than a hole in the ground. No-one knows that 'Mrs Gloria Smith' is the Queen of England, and is not in the habit of introducing herself to strangers. The story of the sovereign's stay between the Pitons on St. Lucia is a funny and touching account of the friendship, sometimes contentious and on occasion baffling, between Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and a young St. Lucian, Austin Ford. How the Queen reacts to her new life - and how she changes as a result, make "The Autobiography of the Queen" a hilarious and moving tale, in which her need for her subjects is as marked as their dependence on her staying on the throne.
