    One Reply to “Her Majesty: The Court of Queen Elizabeth II”

    1. Not a biography at all, but a wonderfully wonky account of the inside workings of the various offices that keep the monarchy running and how they ve changed over the decades.

    2. Just in time for the Jubilee and the London Olympics, a sympathetic portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II by a knowledgeable journalist and longtime royal watcher I checked this one out of the library by mistake, having confused it with Elizabeth the Queen, which is a scholarly biography This book is dissimilar it is chatty, very British some of the slang expressions and references to popular television shows quite baffled me , concentrates on the present day monarch, and is informal and anecdotal It [...]

    3. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her Court by Robert Hardman provides an overview and analysis of Queen Elizabeth II, her reign, and the many changes and reforms that have transpired over her sixty years on the throne.Well chosen photographs illustrate the Queen s activities includingopening Parliament, Trooping the Colour, visiting a mosque, at the National Stud in Ireland, Garter Day, a state dinner at Windsor, and at a G 20 summit My favorite photos are welcoming home a wounded soldier, at [...]

    4. Read my full thoughts on my blog Considering my lifelong love of British royal history, I found myself surprised by how much I learned from Her MajestyHardman demonstrates the breadth of the Queen s activities, the modern role of the royal family and how it has developed, and the significance of the Commonwealth Hardman was granted several key interviews which made the book not only reputable, but also enjoyable for us royalists Prince Andrew Duke of York and the Queen s second son and Prince [...]

    5. As the author states, the thoughts and feelings of the Queen will come out when access to her papers and journals are available Unfortunately, that will not happen until the Queen dies After reading this, I have a better understanding of the monarchy and the way it works That part was fascinating, as was the information about the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh s marriage and relationship I think the Queen sounds like a fascinating woman, with a lot to offer the world It is not a fast read, espe [...]

    6. This book took me forever to read I m not entirely sure why, because it was interesting I did have a few times I had to wait to get it back from the library This is not so much a biography of the Queen and her life as it is a biography for her reign Organized by topic prime ministers, royalist vs republic debates, foreign interactions, etc instead of chronologically, it was a good format I learned quite a bit and enjoyed the reading.

    7. Enjoyable and informative readI really enjoyed this book It is quite mind boggling to see everything this marvelous woman has done and seen since she became Queen and before that.

    8. We shelve this in Biography, and yet, this is not a biography in the true sense of the word Rather, it is a history of the monarchy and how it and the members of Elizabeth s Court have evolved since she became Queen A couple of chapters in this book were extremely interesting I loved reading about Her People the men and women who work in this corporation to ensure that everything works and runs the way it s supposed to The people who work for the Monarchy the Chefs, Footmen, Maids, etc are often [...]

    9. Well, you can see that it took me about two years to read this book, because I only read it on my Kindle when I was using the elliptical or stationary bike at the gym Now you know how often I ve been to the gym in the past two years Having lived in England for two years, including at the time of the Queen s Silver Jubilee, I m a fan, and I enjoyed learning all about the official lives of Elizabeth and the royal family This book focuses on tons of details, both historical and contemporary For exa [...]

    10. The only reason I m giving this a 4 star is just because it was hard for me to read I mean, it was a good book, it was just hard to make myself keep reading at times Otherwise, it s filled with great info about the monarchy that I didn t know before It was great to find out exactly how the British monarchy works, great insight into some of the things Queen Elizabeth II does and how she does what she does It s far from a biography of her life, but it does give you a good look at how she has shape [...]

    11. She is 60 years on the job, so it is interesting to read an almost insider s description of how The Queen does her job, and how the strangely flexible unwritten British Constitution works with hereditary monarchy as its Head of State rather than an elected presidency Fascinating, lots of interesting tidbits about HM and the Royal family, and not the usual trashy gossip from the Fleet street tabloids Stories are interspered with interview snippets from her nearest and dearest.Still, she can t vot [...]

    12. A strong defense of the Monarch as well as her relatives, it presupposes a certain amount of knowledge and familiarity with royal titles and lingo which was occasionally frustrating I expected something like a traditional chronological biography, but instead it s an analysis of where things currently stand through a historic lens.

    13. Tedious read especially for a non BritI suppose the author didn t realize how much interest there might be in the royal family in the USA He did get across to this reader at least what a marvel this monarch is and how very good she has been for Great Britain and it s Commonwealth.

    14. This book was good in that it outlined the role of Elizabeth II as a constitutional monarch in the here and now However, it was a bit dry and slow going in a couple of spots My favorite chapter in fact was the one on Prince Philip He sounds like an interesting individual.

    15. I picked up this book because my friend is a fan of all things British and I thought I d join the club Certainly it was enlightening, but it was also very, very long and somewhat repetitious Not a bad book at all it just covered way than I needed to know.

    16. I only got to page 13, but the writing was so apallingly bad that I couldn t get any further I d like to know much about Elizabeth II and the details of her reign that I am too young to remember, but I ll search for a better book on the subject.

    17. Exceptional MonarchI have read several biographies of Queen Elizabeth In This one is well written and goes far beyond the tabloid style of some royal biographies I found the section on government and the prime ministers slow going.

    18. The author has great access to the Royal Family and it shows While the narrative is thematically focused rather than strictly linear, the details are excellent I also enjoyed that it was written for a British audience and the I had to work a little to keep up on the slang, which is always fun.

    19. While kind of a paean to the queen, a very interesting behind the scenes look at the history of Elizabeth s reign and the day to day events in her world.

    20. not your typical biography gives a good overview history understanding of the British monarchy under Elizabeth.

    21. Extremely boringI expected to see personal glimpses of the life of the Queen Instead I found a boring grocery list of her duties Carl Roache

    22. FascinatingVery well written but fact filled book about Queen Elizabeth and he family I was never a big royals fan, but what an amazing woman
