*Starred Review* Having recently surpassed Queen Victoria as the longest-reigning monarch in British history, the present queen is generally accorded the distinction of being the most recognized figure in the world. To refer to this surprisingly wide-ranging, complete appraisal of Her Majesty and her significant role and function in not only British society but also in the world order as a biography is to employ a label too restrictive and, frankly, off the mark. From the outset, royals expert Hardman, who has exceptional access to Queen Elizabeth II and her family, stresses the uniqueness of the monarch. The queen has made it her goal, in her quiet but steady and determined fashion, to redefine the role of Britain and the monarchy itself in a post-imperial world of equals. Hardman insightfully addresses her royal tours, state visits of foreign leaders to London, her leadership in the evolution of her position as head of the Commonwealth, her participation in the special relationship with the U.S., and the role of the royal yacht, Britannia, in spreading the goodwill of the queen globally. Hardman also contrasts the character and personality of the queen and her son, the Prince of Wales. Throughout, Hardman's analysis is discerning, knowledgeable, and fascinating.
