Download a digital version of our BBC History Magazine collector's special edition: The Queen: A guide to her life and times
This collector's special edition bookazine – republished in Spring 2022 to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee – contains a variety of articles about Queen Elizabeth II written by historians and other experts.
Throughout the pages you’ll follow the Queen’s journey, from her early years as a princess with no expectations of the crown through her wartime service, her marriage to the late Prince Philip, the joys – and struggles – of family life, and the many milestones and achievements of her long reign.
It also charts some of the transformations witnessed in Britain and the world at large, recognising the Queen’s role in some of these changes – not least the evolution of the Commonwealth.
Please note that some of the articles in this bookazine first appeared in 2016. The bookazine was reprinted and updated in 2022 ahead of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
