With the church bells of the Royal Wedding still ringing in Britain’s ears, St Albans author Jane Dismore has released a new book looking at the youth of HM The Queen.

Princess: The Early Life of Queen Elizabeth tells the story of the young princess becoming monarch, from when Princess Elizabeth fell in love with Prince Philip of Greece, to shortly after she took the throne at the age of 26.

Jane started as an English and drama teacher who wrote articles for women’s magazines, then became a solicitor, and eventually a published author.

She said she was motivated to write this book because she felt the industry seems to be lacking information regarding the Queen’s early life, and also wanted to focus readers’ attention on the untold stories of women, from their backgrounds to their achievements.

“Throughout history, women have largely been overlooked. The articles I write today are often about women who played an important part in some way but who are rarely written about.”
