Elizabeth the Queen - The Life of a Modern Monarch By Sally Bedell Smith - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Elizabeth the Queen:

The life of Britain's longest-reigning monarch.

My favorite Queen Elizabeth II quote:

"It has perhaps always been the case that the waging of peace is the hardest form of leadership of all."

Questions to ponder while reading Elizabeth the Queen:

How much of my life would I give up for my country?

Would England be England without the Queen?

My review of the book:

An engaging read about an engaging monarch.

I do not envy the Queen's responsibilities

I do envy her stable and cars.

*sigh* I suppose you can't have one without the other.
