Every little girl longs to be a princess, but what is life really like for a young girl growing up first as Elizabeth of York and then as Princess Elizabeth, heir to the throne? This is the rarely told story of the young Elizabeth in her formidable years. It begins with her grandparents from whom Elizabeth learned that the privileges of royalty come with a dedication to duty and country and her loving parents who did their best to maintain a normal childhood within the royal fishbowl. This richly detailed portrait is a peek into the heart of the young girl who would become Her Majesty the Queen.
