Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II's full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary. Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926 and is now at the age of 89. Her birth was in the United Kingdom, London, Mayfair. Her Husband is Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Queen Elizabeth II has four children and their names are Charles Prince of the Wales, Anne Princess Royal, Prince Andrew Duke of York and lastly Prince Edward Earl of Wessex or they can be known as just their first names (Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward).  Her parents are Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and George VI. She also only has one sibling and that is a lady named Princess Margaret Countess of Snowdon.

Queen Elizabeth became head of the commonwealth of the seven countries which are United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon.  

When Elizabeth II was in her early days she was baptised by the Anglican Archbishop of York, Cosmo Gordon Lang, in the private chapel in the Buckingham Palace on the day 29th of May and then named Elizabeth after her mother. They then named Alexandra after her Father’s ( George V) mum. Then Mary was the name that was named after Elizabeth’s Paternal Grandmother. Her cousin had always called her “a jolly little girl” but a good and sensible one.

Elizabeth has had sad times including her father who had died at the age of 56, her mother’s death, death of her son’s former wife “Diana” and more.

I would like to say “Happy Birthday Queen Elizabeth for there are many more years to come may this day be a fantastic day for you, May God bless you”.
