Taken as a whole, this issue comprises the arc given to On Her Majesty's and Diamonds Are Forever in the films. That is, these two stories tell of the events that led to Blofeld's death. As in the films, Majesty's gives us the romance and eventual marriage of Bond and Tracy — and her death that made 007 dispose of Blofeld once and for all.
Though it was the third to be released, chronologically this is the fourth volume in the series.
