For sixty years Elizabeth II has met
each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a weekly audience at Buckingham
Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is
said, not even to their spouses.
The Audience imagines a series of pivotal meetings between the Downing
Street incumbents and their Queen. From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime
Minister uses these private conversations as a sounding board and a
confessional - sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive. In turn, the
Queen can't help but reveal her own self as she advises, consoles and, on
occasion, teases. These private audiences chart the arc of the second
Elizabethan Age, from the beginning of Elizabeth II's reign to today.
Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics,
while she remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
