THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED

On 9 September 2015 HM The Queen will enter the history books as the longest serving British monarch, surpassing the record held up until now by her great great grandmother, Queen Victoria.

At 5.30pm on 9 September HM The Queen will have reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and about 30 minutes. As her father King George VI died in his sleep in the early hours of 6 February 1952, it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact moment Her Majesty became Queen, but it is generally assumed her father passed around 1am.

To mark this momentous occasion, we are giving away five copies of a glorious illustrated history celebrating HM The Queen’s reign and the history of the British monarchy, which contains rarely seen photographs from the Queen’s childhood.

The book, Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family, charts the progress of the House of Windsor and includes images of the Queen as a young girl, right up to the present day as she approaches her 90th birthday.

However, the book doesn’t stop (or indeed start) there but provides a comprehensive history of the kings and queens of England and Scotland, all the way back to the abandonment of Britain by the Romans in 400AD, and focusing on key moments, such as the War of the Roses, the House of Tudor and the House of Stuart. The book is available to buy from DK publishing from 1 September 2015 and priced at £25.

To be in with the chance of winning a copy, answer the question below, fill out the form and press the ‘Submit my entry’ form.

Deadline for entries 11 September 2015.
