February 1953 marked the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Little did she know, she was about to be deployed in a secret plot to topple Iran’s democratic leader in favor of an all-powerful Shah.

Planned by MI6 and executed by the C.I.A., the coup that followed destroyed relations between Iran and the West. Using newly declassified documents, The Queen and the Coup unravels this secret for the first time.
