ELIZABETH England's Modern Queen by Cornelis Spencer

ELIZABETH England's Modern Queen

Email this review


A commendatory biography of the present queen of England, from her Scottish girlhood to her work in the present war. Glamis Castle was a hospital in the first world war, so she was innured to war in youth; seasons in London and Paris, early meetings with Albert, her engagement, marriage, her life as Duchess of York, her children, the accession to the throne, the trip to America, her determination throughout to do the job in hand to the best of her ability. There is much of her character, her contacts with people, her desire for private life, her belief in her husband and her help to him in overcoming his handicap. Of its type, good, with clear picture of girl into woman, using her every faculty to do her best under all circumstances.
