Celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II marks 60 years as Canada's monarch in 2012. This fully up-to-date book captures the excitement, the majesty, and the pageantry of the spectacular events that have allowed her subjects to celebrate and share their admiration for their Queen in her Diamond Jubilee year. This book recalls the many key moments of Jubilee year, including The Queen and Prince Philip's nationwide tour of the United Kingdom, the overseas tours by other members of the Royal Family, and the spectacular flotilla on the Thames. The book also looks at every aspect of the life of a beloved monarch: from childhood through to marriage and motherhood, and from her accession and working life to the country pursuits she enjoys in her rare "off-duty" moments.
