Elizabeth II (born 21 April 1926) is the Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth states. Elizabeth was born in Mayfair, London, as the Duke and Duchess of York’s first child (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth).
Following the abdication of her father’s brother, King Edward VIII, in 1936, Elizabeth became the heir presumptive. She was educated privately at home and began her public service during WWII, serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service.
She married Philip Mountbatten, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, in November 1947, and their marriage lasted 73 years until Philip’s death in 2021. They had four children: Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, Princess Anne, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
When her father died in February 1952, Elizabeth became queen regnant of seven sovereign Commonwealth nations, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon, as well as Head of the Commonwealth.
Elizabeth has reigned as a constitutional monarch during important political upheavals such as the Northern Ireland Troubles, devolution in the United Kingdom, African decolonization, and the United Kingdom’s entrance to the European Communities and secession from the European Union.
Her domains’ number has fluctuated throughout time as provinces won independence and certain realms became republics. State trips to the People’s Republic of China in 1986, the Russian Federation in 1994, the Republic of Ireland in 2011, and visits to or from five popes are among her numerous significant travels and encounters.
