Queen Elizabeth II Birthdate and Childhood
Elizabeth II was born in Mayfair, London. She was the first child of the Duchess and Duke of York. Her father became king in 1936 after abnegation of the throne by his brother, King Edward VIII. She was privately educated by her parents and put on public duties during the Second World War. She served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service.
In 1947, Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten and their marriage lasted until he died in 2021. They had four children together: Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
After the death of her father in 1952, Elizabeth, who was only 25 years old, became queen regnant of seven independent countries: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon (today known as Sri Lanka), as well as leader of the Commonwealth.
Elizabeth Queen of England was the constitutional monarch of many major political changes such as the troubles in Northern Ireland, devolution in UK, decolonization of Africa, and the United Kingdom’s accession to European Communities and withdrawal from European Union. The types of her domain changed over time as territories gained their independence and some regions became republics.
Margaret Thatcher has met five popes, as well as meeting with said popes on state visits to China, Russia, and Ireland.
Significant events in Elizabeth’s life include her coronation in 1953 and the celebrations of her Silver, Golden, Diamond, and Platinum Jubilees in 1977, 2002, 2012, and 2022. Elizabeth was the longest-reigning and longest-lived British monarch. The second-longest reigning sovereign monarch in world history that can be verified is Louis XVI of France.
When Elizabeth first came to the throne, she faced republicans and criticism by media. She also had some difficult times with her children and their marriages. However, support for her monarchy continued to be strong and her popularity in the United Kingdom remained high too. One of the highlights was when Princess Diana died in 1997.
Elizabeth was born at 2:40 a.m. on April 21st of 1926, in the midst of her paternal grandfather’s reign and during the reign of his father George V. Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, was the second son of George V and her mother, Queen Elizabeth II, was the youngest daughter of Claude Bowes-Lyon and his wife Dame Mary Todd (later Queen Mary), whose London home she was delivered at on November 17th, 1926.
She was baptised in the private chapel of Buckingham Palace and named after her deceased mother, Alexandra Mary Elizabeth Victoria; she was also named Mary in order to honor her maternal grandmother. She was later called Lilibet by her close family. George V cherished her visits during his serious illness in 1929, because they helped him improve his health.
Elizabeth’s only sibling, Princess Margaret, was born in 1930. Elizabeth and Princess Margaret were educated at home by their mother. Their lessons concentrated on history, language, literature, and music.
In 1950, Crawford published The Little Princesses, a biography of Elizabeth’s childhood years. The book showcases her love of horses and dogs and her orderliness. Others echoed the same observations: Winston Churchill writes that two-year-old Elizabeth is “character”.
Her cousin Margaret Rhodes described her as “gentle, yet authoritative and thoughtful” when she was an infant.
