"A bulging plum pudding of insider snippets in the Cecil Beaton tradition, with camp and catty asides laced with worldly wisdom... Vickers has done serious research in some important areas" -- Robert Lacey Sunday Times "This is the first full-length biography - and who better to write it than Hugo Vickers... He is at home in the courtier's world and the circles which the Queen Mother inhabited... A very considerable achievement" -- Sarah Bradford Spectator "A major new biography... Filled with telling anecdotes, it paints an affectionate yet revealing portrait" Daily Mail "There is a small handful of British royal biographies which have acquired classic status... To this number must certainly be added Hugo Vickers's life of Elizabeth the Queen Mother. It is a truly magnificent book... Written with true authority. Hugo Vickers knows his subject through and through... A monumental record of why we all found the Queen Mother such a loveable and inspiring person, and why her pluck and her humour appealed to so wide a public" -- A.N. Wilson Country Life "Witty and respectful ... An overall portrait which may well be as close as anyone will ever get to the truth" -- Craig Brown Mail on Sunday
