QUEEN OF THE WORLD Elizabeth II: Sovereign and Stateswoman

by | Read by Robert Hardman

Biography & Memoir • 23.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Robert Hardman impeccably narrates his insightful new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In a smooth tone that is dignified yet warm, Hardman recounts highlights of the monarch's reign. Rather than a chronological biography, this account groups historical events into specific topics, such as royal overseas visits, working relationships with prime ministers, and state banquets. Hardman emphasizes the Queen's impressive experience as head of state; over more than 70 years she has visited more than 130 countries and guided dramatic changes in the British Commonwealth, as well. Hardman infuses a touch of pride as he relates anecdotes demonstrating HRH's impressive diplomatic skills and voices a hint of criticism when he describes the eventual decommissioning of the royal yacht, BRITANNIA. Overall, this is an untraditional but well-written biography, crisply narrated. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
