Long Live the Queen: 23 Rules for Living from Britain’s Longest-Reigning Monarch
Elizabeth II is now the longest reigning monarch in England’s history. Whenever one sees her, she seems quite spry and fairly active. Considering she is now in her mid-90s, that is really something. So how does she do it? What is the secret to her energy and verve at her age?
Author Bryan Kozlowski has certainly done his homework to write this absolutely delightful peek into the life and times of Queen Elizabeth. He breaks the book down into six sections: Eat Like a Queen, Work Like a Queen, Play Like a Queen, Think Like a Queen, Love Like a Queen, and Age Like a Queen. Each of these sections is divided into three to four topics. It is fascinating to read about the pedestrian diet this incredibly wealthy, powerful woman eats and, to a certain degree, why. Plus, ever wondered what happens to a life-long servant who decides to write about the royal family’s private life? It can get pretty chilly in England.
Kozlowski’s writing is top notch. He has a wicked sense of humor and clearly is very fond of his subject. The footnotes are absolutely not to be missed. They add so much to this already fun book. This is a real winner.
