BBC: The Queen-P2P

This article has been published at - visit our site for full content.

When Elizabeth II was born in April 1926, Stanley Baldwin was prime minister, the General Strike was a few weeks away and the scars of the First World War were strongly evident in British society. Since then, Britain has experienced tremendous changes, but one thing has remained constant – the Queen, our longest-reigned and longest-lived monarch. In this collector’s edition, we’ve compiled and updated a number of articles that have appeared in BBC History Magazine and The Queen, a special edition published in 2016. We’ve also included several new articles, written specially for this edition.

You’ll discover the Queen’s journey from a young princess with no expectations of the crown, through her wartime service, marriage and family, to her recent jubilee triumphs. At the same time, we chart some of the transformations that have occurred in the country and the world at large. On some occasions, the Queen has been an important component of these historical events, such as the growth of the Commonwealth, whose story is chronicled in these pages. I hope that you enjoy reading this special edition and don’t forget to check out regular issues of BBC History Magazine where we will continue to explore the history of the 20th century in depth.
