The Times The Queen and the Commonwealth: Celebrating seven decades of royal state visits

Hardback

Our most travelled monarch covered well over 1,000,000 miles and visited 117 countries during her reign. From New Zealand to Barbados, we look back at Queen Elizabeth’s most memorable Commonwealth visits.

Explore the nature of this evolving relationship through The Times archives, with striking full-colour photographs and authoritative accounts of news stories as they unfolded across the globe.

• Timelines for each decade of state visits, from the 1950s to the 2010s
