The Queen: Her Commonwealth Story

Ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London next month, the BBC’s George Alagiah explores the fascinating history of Queen Elizabeth II and her beloved Commonwealth in ‘The Queen: Her Commonwealth Story’. Walking in her footsteps, he discovers how the role of heading this family of nations has affected the Queen as she grew and developed, both as a monarch and as a person. He visits Tonga, Australia, Ghana, India and South Africa, and talks to Princess Anne, Princess Pilolevu of Tonga, former Australian prime minister Bob Hawke, the second Commonwealth secretary-general Sir Sonny Ramphal, former private secretary Sir William Heseltine and South African politician Mamphela Ramphele.
