Journey into the six decade reign of one of the world's most influential women. Follow Queen Elizabeth II's remarkable life, from her youth-when few expected she'd ever wear the crown-to her uncle Edward VIII's stunning abdication, and her father's subsequent coronation as King George VI. Witness her experiences during World War II, her own sudden ascension to the throne, and her eventful reign of more than 60 years. She defines the role of a modern monarch, leading the Royal Family and her subjects through the challenges of post-war reconstruction, decolonization, conflicts in South Africa, Northern Ireland and The Falklands, and the emotionally-charged days after Princess Diana's death. Among those interviewed are former Prime Minister Sir John Major, actor Sir Ben Kingsley, biographer Sally Bedell Smith, Academy Award®-winning screenwriter David Seidler (The King’s Speech), director Stephen Frears (The Queen), President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush, historian John Julius Cooper, Secretary General of the Commonwealth Kamalesh Sharma, and the Queen’s cousins Margaret Rhodes and Lady Elizabeth Anson.
