Queen and Country Summary

Queen and Country by William Shawcross

With unprecedented access to the Royal Family, William Shawcross delves into the Queen's very public and intensely private lives, revealing a picture of a very human monarch. This illustrated celebration of 50 years of Elizabeth II's reign reveals her private passions such as horse racing and interviews those people who have known the Queen in this private capacity. Shawcross reveals new information about her relations with the Prime Ministers who have served under her, and her - sometimes stormy - relationships with the Royal Family. While the furore surrounding minor Royals continues, the Queen stands constant and dignified. However, even the Queen has had to adapt in her dealings with the British media as we move into an age where private lives are up-for-grabs. "Queen and Country" sheds light on how the Queen is looking forward to the future in 21st century Britain and who will succeed her to the throne.
