STUDIO CITY (CBS) — In her new biography, “Elizabeth The Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch,” New York Times bestselling author Sally Bedell Smith brings to life one of the world’s most fascinating and enigmatic women: Queen Elizabeth II.

Smith stopped by KCAL9 Sunday to talk about her new book.

As the first American author to have special access to the Queen’s closest advisers and friends, Bedell Smith draws on numerous interviews and never-before-revealed documents. She pulls back the curtain to show in intimate detail the public and private lives of Queen Elizabeth II, who, from the moment of her ascension to the throne in 1952 at the age of twenty-five, has been the object of unparalleled scrutiny.

With new information and fresh insights, Smith explains how the Queen has led her country and Commonwealth through the wars and upheavals of the last sixty years with unparalleled composure, intelligence and grace.
