      Early life. Elizabeth was the elder daughter of Prince Albert, duke of York, and his wife, Lady Elizabeth the child of a younger son of King George V, the young Elizabeth had little prospect of acceding to the throne until her uncle, Edward VIII (afterward duke of Windsor), abdicated in her father’s favour on Decem , at which time her father became King George . Yes, there is a lovely story of how gentle and understanding the Queen was towards Wallis Simpson at the time of the Duke of Windsor’s funeral.

    All in all, it is a book one should read and should not miss. But I believe this is not the last word on the Queen Mother and future biographies will have to be written in order complete the picture of the Queen Mother. The Queen Mother was an extraordinary personality and to capture this one needs an extraordinary biography.4/5(17).   The Queen Mother's penchant for a perfectly mixed dry martini is revealed in a new book compiled from the accounts of members of the royal household .
