A lavishly illustrated celebration of the 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II and the British Royal Family from the unrivalled archive of British Vogue.
´Vogue, like the royal family, has been through many evolutions of its own, and to view Her Majesty´s life though the record of our pages is truly a document of history.´ - Edward Enninful, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue
Four monarchs (crowned and uncrowned); one abdication; one royal investiture; a jewel box of jubilees and many, many royal marriages... British Vogue has borne witness to a century of royal history. The Crown in Vogue is the magazine´s ´special royal salute´ to our longest serving monarch and her ´assured and unwavering´ presence in the lives of a nation.
Vogue´s first star photographer, Cecil Beaton, was entranced by the House of Windsor and the admiration was mutual. A younger star photographer, Antony Armstrong Jones, left Vogue to marry the Queen´s sister and returned as Lord Snowdon. The Queen´s cousin, Vogue´s Lord Lichfield proved an insightful photographer of royal style along with many of Vogue´s fashion photographers including Horst, Norman Parkinson and David Bailey.
With visual treasures from Vogue´s unrivalled archive and contributions through the decades from the most perceptive of royal commentators - from Evelyn Waugh to Zadie Smith - The Crown in Vogue is the definitive, authoritative portrait of Queen Elizabeth II´s magnificent reign - and of royalty in the modern age.
