With her passing at the age of 96, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's life, devoted to duty and family, came to an end after 70 momentous years on the throne.

Throughout her remarkable reign, the Queen never wavered from her course and was felt by many to be an inspiration and kindred spirit.

To celebrate what an exceptional monarch she was, we look back to her childhood, her time as a young bride, her accession to the throne and the key moments through her 70 years of dedicated service to the nation, with our special collectors' edition of Yours Magazine, Our Queen Remembered.

This beautifully illustrated collectors’ edition is packed with iconic photographs of our Queen as a monarch, a mother and grandmother.

To give you a sneak preview, here are a few of our favourites...
