Description
Information
One of the great revelations of William Shawcross's official biography was the Queen Mother's private correspondence. Indeed, the Sunday Times described her letters as "wonderful... brimful of liveliness and irreverence, steeliness and sweetness."

Now, drawing on the vast wealth of material in the Royal Archives, at Glamis Castle, and elsewhere, Shawcross has put together a selection of those letters. A prolific correspondent from her earliest childhood to the very end of her life, her letters offer readers a vivid insight into the person behind the public face.

Full of wit, hilarity, acute observation and a deeply held sense of duty, Queen Elizabeth's letters constitute a chronicle both of her long life and of the twentieth century.
