Details

The last year has seen the Queen pass two significant milestones: not only is she our longest reigning monarch, this April she also became the first British sovereign to reach the age of 90.

Her Majesty remains as active and dedicated to the business of monarchy as ever, carrying out more than 340 engagements in 2015 alone.

Royal watcher James Taylor takes a look at the Queen’s reign and her role in public life today. Having attended a number of royal occasions, he is well placed to explain their happenings and their significance as well as decoding some of the myths surrounding the royal family.

James has been a regular royal commentator on local radio and television over several years and is also a regular columnist on the Royal Family for local newspapers.
