9781471151545: The Queen's Speech: An Intimate Portrait of the Queen in her Own Words
Quatrième de couverture :

On 9 September 2015, Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest-serving monarch in British history. During her sixty-three years on the throne, outside of her immediate family and circle of friends, no one has really discovered her true character. Publicly, she has kept her emotions and feelings concealed, but there is one body of work that sheds real light on her thoughts, personality and the issues that really concern her: the Queen's own speeches. Her personal Christmas address has often been the most watched programme on television on Christmas Day, and millions still tune in to bring her into their homes.
Now, in this compelling book, Ingrid Seward uses the Queen's speeches as a starting point to provide a revealing insight into the character of the woman who has reigned over us since the days when Churchill was prime minister. Starting with her first-ever broadcast, in December 1940, right through the annus horribilis and on to the twenty-first century, the book picks out the most important moments in her life and assesses her response to them.
Dismissed by some critics as bland fare, in fact the Queen's speeches have often been subtly but highly revealing. Along the way, she has addressed issues from the role of women and the challenges faced by the early immigrants through to the internet era and the role of the Commonwealth. Now, in The Queen's Speech, Ingrid Seward provides a fascinating insight into this very public but also very private figure.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

On 9 September 2015, Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest-serving monarch in British history. During her 63 years on the throne, few have got to know her well, but there is one body of work that sheds new light on her thoughts, personality and the issues that really concern her: the Queen's own speeches. For many years, the Queen's Christmas address was the most-watched programme on television on Christmas Day, and millions still tune in to hear what she has to say.
Now, in this wonderful, intimate portrait of Her Majesty, Ingrid Seward uses the Queen's speeches as a starting point to provide a revealing insight into the character of the woman who has reigned over us since the days when Churchill was prime minister. Starting with her first ever broadcast, in December 1940, when the teenaged Princess Elizabeth addressed a wartorn nation, right through the annus horribilis, and on into the 21st century, the book highlights the most important moments in her life and how she has responded to them.
Based on in-depth research and interviews with many of those who know the Queen best, this book sheds new light on the life and career of our monarch. Renowned as one of the most authoritative writers on royal matters, Ingrid Seward, the editor of Majesty magazine, has written a charming and fascinating portrait that will be cherished by all who read it.
