The incredible true story of a young and brilliant Princess who grew up to become our Queen. A perfect picture book to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's big 95th birthday!
Once, a very long time ago, there was a little Princess called Elizabeth who loved to play and have fun with her horses, dogs and little sister, Margaret. But when she was ten years old, her life changed forever.
