To mark the passing of the Queen, Noiser brings you this episode from the archive of Short History Of…
Spanning seventy years, Queen Elizabeth II’s reign saw the world change beyond recognition. And from her earliest public appearances representing the King to her roles as sister, wife, mother and mother-in-law, she was never far from the headlines. But what was life like for the young princess, who dreamed of a baby brother to take the throne instead? How did she modernise an ancient role to fit a changing world, while managing a family so often overshadowed by scandal?
A Noiser production, written by Jo Furniss. With thanks to Dr Tracy Norman, author of Crown and Sceptre; and Dr Tessa Dunlop, author of Army Girls.
