This is a comprehensive record of the life and times of the Queen Mother from her birth in 1900 to the present day. The book begins with a collection of photographs which illustrate themes in the Queen Mother's life, with childhood portraits and press photographs of decades of formal and informal occasions. The rest of the book charts the course of her life year by year, and chronological lists briefly describe events whilst more detailed articles focus on major stories and the Queen Mother's role in them. Her experience of World War II and Edward VIII's abdication is treated in depth. The book also covers stories concerning other mambers of the Royal Family, and looks at the Queen Mother's relationships with her relatives.
