Andrew Marr presents a landmark BBC documentary celebrating Queen Elizabeth IIís 60 years as Head of State of the United Kingdom and Head of the Commonwealth. For the first time in modern history a Monarch reaches their Diamond Jubilee. To mark the occasion The Diamond Queen presents a definitive analysis of The Queenís reign, examining her history, constitutional role and responsibilities and her impact around the world. It features interviews with prime ministers, world leaders and special interviews with members of the Royal Family, and closely follows The Queenís working engagements around the world for the period of more than a year and a half.
The book published alongside the series is an account of The Queen's reign.
With the flair for narrative and the meticulous research that readers have come to expect, Andrew Marr turns his attention to the monarch and to the monarchy, chronicling the Queen's pivotal role at the centre of the state, which is largely hidden from the public gaze, and making a strong case for the institution itself. Arranged thematically, rather than chronologically, Marr dissects the Queen's political relationships, crucially those with her Prime Ministers; he examines her role as Head of the Commonwealth, and her deep commitment to that Commonwealth of nations; he looks at the drastic changes in the media since her accession in 1952 and how the monarchy and the monarch have had to change and adapt as a result. Indeed he argues that under her watchful eye, the monarchy has been thoroughly modernized and made as fit for purpose in the twenty-first century as it was when she came to the throne and a 'new Elizabethan age' was ushered in.
