HERE’S your chance to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee in style.
The Herald has three copies of a sumptuous new souvenir book marking 60 years of Her Majesty’s reign.
The Queen’s accession to the throne was 60 years ago on Monday. To mark the occasion, Haynes is publishing ‘Sixty Glorious Years’ – a stunning commemorative picture collection drawn from the extensive Daily Mirror archive.
With more than 300 stills, many rarely seen before, this book document’s the life of Queen Elizabeth II and includes both formal portraits and behind-the-scenes ‘off-duty’ pictures that give a fascinating insight into the life of our monarch.
Written by the Daily Mirror’s royal correspondent Victoria Murphy, the book covers The Queen’s sensational 60 years on the throne and, in so doing, charts the huge social, political and economic change the country has seen during that time.
Through 12 Prime Ministers, four recessions, wars and a technological revolution The Queen has remained a constant, stable and popular figure at the head of the world’s most famous royal family.
From the earliest pictures showing the baby Elizabeth in a pram, the book takes the reader through her extraordinary life – covering state occasions, private functions and royal weddings – including William and Kate’s.
We have three copies of the hardback book to give away. To be in with a chance see this week’s paper.
