ELIZABETH II 

 

ELIZABETH II Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary;[2] born 21 April 1926)[a] is the queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms.[b] Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home. Her father acceded to the throne on the abdication of his brother King Edward VIII in 1936, from which time she was the heir presumptive. She began to undertake public duties during the Second World War, serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service. In 1947, she married Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, with whom she has four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. When her father died in February 1952, Elizabeth became head of the Commonwealth and queen regnant of seven independent Commonwealth countries: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon. She has reigned as a constitutional monarch through major political changes, such as devolution in the United Kingdom, Canadian patriation, and the decolonisation of Africa. Between 1956 and 1992, the number of her realms varied as territories gained independence, and as realms, including South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon (renamed Sri Lanka), became republics. Her many historic visits and meetings include a state visit to the Republic of Ireland and visits to or from five popes. Significant events have included her coronation in 1953 and the celebrations of her Silver, Golden, and Diamond Jubilees in 1977, 2002, and 2012, respectively. In 2017, she became the first British monarch to reach a Sapphire Jubilee. She is the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, as well as the world's longest-serving female head of state, oldest living monarch, longest-reigning current monarch, and the oldest and longest-serving current head of state.

QUEEN ELIZABETH II FAMOUS QUOTES

 

 


I have to be seen to be believed.

-----------------------------------

I would have liked to be a lady living in the country with many horses and dogs.

-----------------------------------

We were terrified at the thought of being recognized, so I pulled the visor of my kepi over my eyes. We were walking in the streets, a line of strangers holding arms and walking in (the street of) Whitehall, carried by a tide of happiness and relief.

-----------------------------------

I declare before you all that my entire life, whether long or short, will be dedicated to your service and to the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.

-----------------------------------

That's terrible. If I don't smile, I have a kind of grumpy face.
