Queen Elizabeth II: Who Was She?
Queen Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953, after taking the throne on February 6, 1952. She was the grandmother of Princes William and Harry as well as the mother of Prince Charles, the successor to the throne. She strove to modernize her reign and be responsive to a changing public while upholding traditions linked with the throne as the longest-serving monarch in British history,She made an effort to uphold the traditions associated with the monarchy while modernizing her reign and being sympathetic to a shifting populace.
Age 96, Elizabeth passed away on September 8, 2022.
Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born on April 21, 1926, in London to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and Prince Albert, Duke of York (after known as King George VI).
Most people did not know Elizabeth would grow up to be the queen of Great Britain when she was born. Elizabeth, also known as Lilibet, was able to enjoy her first ten years of life with all the benefits that come with being a princess without the stress of having to be the heir apparent.
Elizabeth’s father and mother split their time between London and Royal Lodge, the family’s home in Windsor Great Park. Tutors educated Elizabeth and her younger sister Margaret at home. Academic courses included French, mathematics, and history, as well as lessons in dancing, singing, and art.
Elizabeth made her first public appearance inspecting troops in 1942, after her father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards. She also began accompanying her parents on official visits within the United Kingdom.
Elizabeth joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service in 1945 to aid with the war effort. She studied with other British women to become an outstanding driver and technician. While her voluntary job was just a few months long, it provided Elizabeth with a look into a different, non-royal world. Outside of the monarchy, she had another dramatic experience when she and Margaret were permitted to mingle anonymously among the citizens on Victory in Europe Day.
Accession to the Throne
When Elizabeth’s grandfather, George V, died in 1936, his eldest son, King Edward VIII (Elizabeth’s uncle), succeeded him. Edward, on the other hand, was over over heels in love with American divorcee Wallis Simpson and had to choose between the crown and his heart. Finally, Edward selected Simpson and abdicated the throne.
The event altered the direction of her life, making her the presumed successor to the British throne. In 1937, her father was anointed King George VI, using the name George to symbolize continuity with his father. When King George died in 1952, her mother became Queen Elizabeth, and her daughter became Queen Elizabeth II.
