Princess: The Early Life of Queen Elizabeth II

Written by Jane Dinsmore

Princess traces how an "ordinary country girl" found herself in the line of succession to the Crown at age 10 when her uncle, King Edward VIII, abdicated the Throne to his brother Albert, who became King George VI.

Breaking new ground, she was the first female member of the royal family to join the Armed Services full-time and broke tradition by making her son the first Heir to the Throne to attend school rather than being privately tutored. After her accession to the Throne, she would draw on her solid background during the rapidly changing times of her long reign. Out of a little princess they made a Queen.

Vivid detail and anecdotes reveal more about her, the era in which she grew up and the people who shaped her life.
