In the year of her Golden Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II addressed Parliament saying, 'Change is a constant; managing it has become an expanding discipline. The way we embrace it defines our future.'

Those sentences are emblematic of a reign which have overseen tremendous changes. In Elizabeth Revealed, Lucinda Hawksley looks at the reign of the longest-serving monarch in British history and at the woman whose image has become an international icon.
