Mother of a Queen, Mother of a Nation. An intimate portrait of a much-loved royal.
4 August 1900 - 30 March 2002
This remarkable portrait digs beneath the surface and presents for the first time a balanced account of the life of a powerful and exceptional woman.
Presenting a vivid portrait of The Queen Mother, it traces many aspects of her life, including her love for her husband and daughters, her support for the institution of monarchy, her reaction to the abdication crisis, her animosity towards Mrs Simpson and Princess Diana, her close bond with Prince Charles, and her extravagant lifestyle and love of racing, gardens and fashion. Her life spanned a century - and her influence indisputably lives on.
For a century, she dazzled a nation - and the world. She remains one of the most popular symbols of 20th-century royalty and she set an example for everyone in public life.
A symbol of courage in the Second world War and an enduring icon of stability, the Queen Mother attracted a loyalty of affection matched only by the Queen herself.
