    A season-by-season guide to The Queen's year, this colourful souvenir album includes both the public and historic events, such as the State Opening of Parliament and Remembrance Sunday; and the more private, informal occasions, such as the famous summer garden parties at Buckingham Palace and the glamour of Royal Ascot. It explores the historical background to these events, following The Queen on Her travels and duties both within the United Kingdom and abroad, and uses an insider's viewpoint to tell the story of the royal year from behind the scenes.

    The detailed and informative text is accompanied by more than 250 illustrations, including new and specially commissioned photography of The Queen, making this both a unique history and a magnificent visual exploration of a year in the life of the sovereign.
