This is her father, King George VI, on a stamp from the year 2012.

He was portrayed by Colin Firth in the 2010 movie, The King’s Speech, which centered around the overcoming of his fear of public speaking.

He married the Queen’s mother and namesake, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. Here they are with their parents, The Earl and Countess of Strathmore, the Duchess and Duke of York, and King George V and Queen Mary.

They were Elizabeth, born on April 21st, 1926, and Margaret, born 21st August 1930. Here they are with their mother (second from left) and their father (far right) at Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh, in 1937.

Queen Elizabeth has very historic ancestors.

She had biological ties to the majority of European royalty. Some of her most famous relatives include Queen Victoria I (pictured here) who ruled from 1837 to 1901, and King George III, whole ruled from 1760 to 1820.

During WWII, she and Margaret were evacuated to Windsor to keep them safely out of London. While there, Elizabeth made her first public appearance by way of radio broadcast. She famously said, “That in the end, all will be well; for God will care for us and give us victory and peace.”

Elizabeth’s father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards and she made her first public appearances inspecting her troops.

Elizabeth, the King’s first-born, automatically became the Queen of England.

She was crowned at Westminster Abbey at the mere age of twenty-seven. Interestingly, Elizabeth’s was the first coronation to be shown on television.

Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten (a distant relative of hers) on November 20th, 1947, when she was just twenty-one. She’d met Philip aged thirteen and the 2 quickly became totally smitten.

Queen Elizabeth was known for being more reserved and thoughtful, while Philip always had a reputation for being a bit bold and brash, and he has always had something of a mixed reputation in high society.

Soon after their marriage, they were required to take the last name of Windsor, which caused tension between the pair. There have also been numerous public scandals, including rumors of Philip’s infidelity. But to this very day, the couple remains happily married.

Their first child, Charles, was born in 1948, and is pictured of the left. Their second child, Anne, soon followed in 1950.

And whilst being a mother and a wife, Queen Elizabeth has successfully ruled the United Kingdom over the years, and she has also made herself into a very loved monarch.

So, naturally, people have been worrying about her health a lot. And with the global pandemic proving to be deadly, we’re hoping that the Queen is practicing social-distancing properly.

But it turns out that the Queen has been taking matters very seriously.

Since the day she became Queen, the monarch has held weekly meetings with the British prime minister. Of course, social distancing is of the utmost importance – especially for the elderly – so the Queen has taken a step into the modern age to carry out her duties.

And that includes royal protocol.

Alongside other members of the royal family reached out to nurses all around the world, the official Twitter account for the family released the audio from a private phone call that the Queen made to Professor Kathleen McCourt, the President of the Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Federation.

Professor Kathleen McCourt said, “Good afternoon, Your Majesty,” to which the Queen replied, “Good afternoon, this is rather an important day.”

Professor McCourt said, “Oh it is, it is quite special the international nurses day being recognized by the general public, to which the Queen responded, “Yes because obviously they have had a very important part to play recently.”

And people have been quick to praise the Queen for acknowledging all of the nurses in the Commonwealth.

It is remarkable how much of a difference nurses have made all around the world…

And we are truly grateful for them.
