Queen Elizabeth: A Profile

On April 21, 1926, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain was born. The Duke of York, who subsequently became King George VI, had her as his first child. Hence, after the King passed away in 1952, she came to the throne at the age of 25.

Apart from this, when the Queen was a princess, she made a speech on her 21st birthday where she promised to dedicate the rest of her life to serving the people of the British and Commonwealth.

Besides this, Queen Victoria, who ruled the United Kingdom for more than 60 years until 1901, was surpassed by her in 2015 to become the monarch with the longest reign.

Adding to that, the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June commemorated Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years as monarch.

Moreover, The Queen served as a treasured representation of the UK’s unity. In 1947, she became the wife to Philip Mountbatten. Prince Charles, the couple’s eldest son, was one of the couple’s four children.

Aside from that, The Queen made numerous trips to Commonwealth nations to improve ties at a time when Britain’s standing in world politics was waning after World War Two.

Additionally, she has always played an active role in terms of raising the voice of concern for the people hit by any sort of crisis. Also, as worries about the coronavirus pandemic grew, she posted on social media her gratitude for the help provided by medical professionals and other employees.

Lastly, The Queen’s husband at the age of 73 years, Prince Philip, passed away in April 2021. In October 2021, the Queen was kept in the hospital for health examinations.
