In All About History issue 113, on sale now, learn how Queen Elizabeth went from being an unlikely heir to the throne of Britain to one of nation’s greatest monarchs. Raised in a time of crisis for the monarchy and through war, the young Elizabeth showed the bearing and fortitude that would come to epitomise her reign in later years, but how did these events impact her way of thinking and approach to her role on the throne? As the queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee, marking 80 years on the throne, All About History looks to reveal more.

The magazine welcomes British historian and author Tracy Borman to guide you through the early life of Princess Elizabeth, how her relationship with her family helped her through the Second World War, what Winston Churchill first thought of the princess when he met her and how she forged her own path as queen when she inherited the throne.
