The event

Like her father and grandfather before her, Elizabeth II was not born to be monarch. Yet she has led her people through more social change than any British sovereign during a life spanning abdication, war, romance, danger, tragedy, and triumph.

In this historic jubilee year, leading royal authority Robert Hardman will bring fresh insights to every stage of the Queen’s extraordinary life.

Gain a new perspective on everything from the Queen’s relationships with her ministers and fellow world leaders to her strategy when confronted with family and constitutional crises from the early years right up to the dramas of the present day.

The speaker

Robert Hardman is a renowned writer and broadcaster, specialising in monarchy and history. His most recent book, Queen of the World, was a study of the monarch’s international role.

He has commentated for the BBC at all the major royal occasions of recent years while writing and producing television documentaries, from George III – The Genius of the Mad King to The Queen’s Castle and, most recently, Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers.

Hardman is an award-winning journalist for the Daily Mail and lives with his family in London.
