Published in honor of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee, The Platinum Queen presents seven decades of world history through the words of Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

For the first time, all 70 of the Queen's Christmas speeches are published together in full, along with six additional feature speeches made at significant points in her life.

Organized by decade, each chapter opens with a narrative essay on the key events that follow, providing an important contextual backdrop to the speeches.

From times of national and global turmoil-including wars, terror attacks, and health crises-to times of joy-such as the new millennium and Olympics-The Platinum Queen is a testament to Elizabeth's unwavering resolve, faith, and dedication to her role.

About the Author

Jennie Bond is a broadcaster and journalist, who appears regularly on a wide range of television and radio programmes. As the BBC's royal correspondent during fourteen of the most turbulent years the monarchy has endured, Jennie was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairy-tale marriages to the adultery, the divorces and the deaths. She is the author of Elizabeth: 50 Glorious Years, a commemoration of the Queen's reign, and Reporting Royalty, which tells in detail of her years keeping tabs on Britain's royal family. She lives in Devon and thoroughly enjoys getting away from it all at her seaside home.
