    The Queen's personal experiences during the war reflected the wider experiences of the public. She too was evacuated and her home bombed; she lost a family member, and she volunteered in service to the war effort. Hear from people who were with her, as well as from historians, journalists and royal commentators as they reveal how these years were so formative for Elizabeth and how, in many ways, it led to the Queen we know today. And extraordinary archival footage will bring the Queen's war to life, showing us what it was really like to experience the Blitz from inside Buckingham Palace, and demonstrating the role the Queen had in inspiring her entire nation.
