Queen Elizabeth II was a constitutional monarch. This means that she was Head of State of the UK and the Commonwealth and of the Established Church but that political power is vested in Parliament. The decision to draft and implement laws lies with the elected government. The Queen was not involved with party politics.
The Queen represented the British people as a ceremonial leader and played an important part as a traditional figurehead. As a popular monarch the Queen enjoyed much public support over the years with events celebrating her Jubilee Anniversaries and the weddings of her children and grandchildren attracting vast crowds.
The Queen was a very wealthy woman but much of her property is held on trust which meant she could not sell it. She was involved with many charitable organisations as a patron.
The pomp and pageantry associated with the monarchy is a major attraction for tourists and brings revenue into the United Kingdom.
The traditional forms of greeting the Queen are:
- For men, a neck bow (from the head only); women do a small curtsy. Shaking hands is also acceptable!
- If you are presented to the Queen, she should be formally addressed as 'Your Majesty' and subsequently 'Ma'am'.
Since 1917, British people celebrating notable birthdays and anniversaries have received a message from the King or Queen . Cards are sent to people celebrating their 100th and 105th birthday (and every year after that), and to those celebrating their diamond wedding (60th), 65th and 70th wedding anniversaries. The Queen's congratulatory message is a card with a personalised message, in a special envelope, delivered through the post.

(1926–2022). Elizabeth II became queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 1952. Like Elizabeth I of England ’s Golden Age, Elizabeth II came to the throne when she was only 25 years old. Elizabeth II went on to become Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, holding the throne for 70 years.
Elizabeth’s father was Albert, duke of York, second son of King George V . Her mother was Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon , a member of the Scottish aristocracy. Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926, in London, England, at the home of her mother’s parents, Lord and Lady Strathmore. Five weeks later she was baptized at Buckingham Palace and christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, after three queens of her country. She was four years old when her sister, Margaret Rose, was born (August 21, 1930). In spite of the difference in their ages, the princesses became close companions. Margaret Rose was lively and mischievous; Elizabeth, rather serious and thoughtful.
The family’s London home was a large Victorian house at 145 Piccadilly. Summer vacations were usually spent in Scotland and weekends at the duke’s country house, Royal Lodge, in Windsor Great Park, 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of London. Here the children had a playhouse, a gift of the people of Wales. Its name was “Y Bwthyn Bach,” or The Little Thatched House. It was complete with small furniture, linens, electric lights, plumbing, and windows that opened and shut. Since only children could stand up in it, the princesses themselves cleaned it and kept it in order.
The princesses did not go to school but were taught by a governess, Marion Crawford, a young Scottish woman. Their daily routine varied little from day to day. Elizabeth, at the age of five, rose at 6 am and went out for a riding lesson with a groom. After breakfast she and her sister went to their parents’ room. They spent the rest of the morning with their governess. After lunch they had lessons in French, voice, and piano. In the afternoon they played in the garden, usually with their governess. They would become so absorbed in their games of hide-and-seek or “sardines” that they seldom noticed the people who would gather outside the garden fence to watch them. They rarely had the company of other children, but they had many pets, particularly horses and dogs. Occasionally their governess would give them a special treat by taking them for a ride in the Underground (subway) or on top of a bus. They dressed simply, in cotton dresses at home and in tweed coats and berets when they went out. They went to bed early, after a visit with their parents.
Heiress to the Throne at the Age of 10
Elizabeth’s carefree days ended in 1936. George V , her grandfather, died early in that year, and before the year ended her Uncle David ( Edward VIII ) abdicated, or gave up the throne. Elizabeth’s father then became king, as George VI , and Elizabeth became heiress presumptive to the throne. The family moved into Buckingham Palace, the royal residence, which was more like a museum than a house. From the princesses’ rooms, in the front, it was a five-minute walk to the garden in the rear.
From this time, Elizabeth began to be trained for her future duties. From her parents and her grandmother, Queen Mary, she learned court etiquette and diplomatic practices. She studied the geography and history of the Commonwealth countries and the United States and was driven to Eton College for private lessons in constitutional law.
Elizabeth was 13 when World War II broke out in 1939. The next year bombs began to fall on London, and the princesses were sent for safety to the grim fortress of Windsor Castle. On October 13, 1940, Elizabeth returned to London to make her first broadcast, from a room in Buckingham Palace. In a clear confident voice she told children everywhere that the children of Britain were “full of cheerfulness and courage.” Before the war ended, she joined the women’s branch of the Army and took training as an automobile driver and mechanic.
Elizabeth had the privilege, often denied to royalty, of marrying a man she loved. During the war she met Prince Philip , an officer in the Royal Navy. Philip had been born on the Greek island of Corfu. As a son of Prince Andrew of Greece, he was in line for the Greek throne, but he had no Greek blood. Through his mother, Princess Alice, he was descended, like Elizabeth, from Queen Victoria of England. He had been educated in Scotland under the care of his uncle and guardian, Earl Mountbatten.
As soon as the war ended, Philip became a frequent visitor at the palace. Before the king announced the betrothal of the young couple, Philip dropped his title of prince to become a British citizen and took his mother’s family name, Mountbatten. The king then created him duke of Edinburgh. On November 20, 1947, the couple were married at Westminster Abbey . A son, Prince Charles Philip Arthur George , was born on November 14, 1948, and a daughter, Princess Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise, on August 15, 1950. On February 19, 1960, the queen had a third child, Prince Andrew Albert Christian Edward. Her fourth child, Prince Edward Antony Richard Louis, was born on March 10, 1964. All these children had the surname “of Windsor.” In 1960 the queen announced that a new surname, Mountbatten-Windsor, would be borne by the third generation of her family.
Elizabeth Is Proclaimed Queen
Even before she became queen, Elizabeth served the government as a skilled ambassador. In 1948 she visited Paris and was acclaimed by the French people. In 1951 she and her husband made a six-week tour of all the provinces of Canada and then flew to Washington, D.C., for a brief visit with U.S. President Harry S. Truman and his wife.
The royal couple were in Kenya, on the first stage of a five-month tour to Australia and New Zealand, when George VI died on February 6, 1952. Elizabeth automatically became queen. She and her husband immediately flew to London. On February 8 the queen took the oath of accession before the Privy Council. She was crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953. In 1957 Elizabeth conferred upon her husband the title prince of the United Kingdom. In 1958 she named Prince Charles , her oldest son and heir apparent to the throne, prince of Wales. He was invested as prince of Wales in 1969.
Elizabeth favored simplicity in court life and took an informed interest in government business. She traveled widely, throughout the United Kingdom and to many countries of the Commonwealth. Her reign was a time of unprecedented public scrutiny of the monarchy, especially after the failed marriage of her son Charles and Diana , princess of Wales, and Diana’s death in 1997. Popular feeling in Britain turned against the royal family, which was thought to be out of touch with contemporary British life. In response, Elizabeth sought to present a less-stuffy and less-traditional image of the monarchy, which she did with some success. In 2002 she celebrated her Golden Jubilee, marking 50 years on the throne.
Ten years later the queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years on the throne. The official anniversary was in February 2012, but the major festivities took place in early June. The events included a parade of boats on the Thames River and a concert at Buckingham Palace. In cities throughout the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth, people lit a series of more than 4,000 beacons to commemorate the occasion. The queen also appeared at a church service at Saint Paul’s Cathedral. Finally, a procession carried her back to Buckingham Palace, where she greeted the people of London from the balcony.
The celebration of the queen’s Diamond Jubilee extended beyond the official events for the rest of the year. Members of the royal family, including Prince William , Catherine, duchess of Cambridge , and Prince Harry , paid visits to many of the countries of the Commonwealth.
In 2015 Elizabeth surpassed Queen Victoria to become the longest-reigning monarch in British history. In 2022 Elizabeth became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne. Health issues limited Elizabeth’s involvement in the festivities.
Meanwhile, Philip, who had been Elizabeth’s husband for more than seven decades, had died in 2021. On their 50th wedding anniversary, in 1997, Elizabeth had said of Philip, “He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.”
Elizabeth died on September 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle , in Scotland. Upon her death, Charles became king of the United Kingdom, taking the name Charles III. The country then formally commemorated Elizabeth’s life and legacy for a period of 10 days. Notably, the body of the queen lay in state for a day in St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland, and then for three days in Westminster Hall in London. In London mourners stood in a line that stretched for miles, in some cases waiting for more than 24 hours to view Elizabeth’s casket. Her funeral ceremony was held in Westminster Abbey on September 19. It was attended by an estimated 100 heads of foreign governments. After the funeral the queen’s casket was brought to her burial place in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Why is Queen Elizabeth II's husband a prince rather than a king?
In the British monarchy, the husband of a female monarch does not have any recognized special status, rank, or privileges.
Prince Philip was a prince from birth. He is the son of Prince Andrew of Greece and was born Prince of Greece and Denmark. Upon his marriage to then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947, Philip was given the title "Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merion, and Baron Greenwich," and was made a Knight of the Garter. (He became a British citizen around this time and renounced his Greek and Danish titles). Elizabeth II was coronated in 1953, and in 1957, she granted Philip the title "Prince of the United Kingdom."
What is Queen Elizabeth's surname?
The Queen does not normally use a surname (she doesn't need a passport or a driving licence for example), but on the few occasions where it has been necessary, i.e. when serving with the ATS during World War II, she has used the surname ' Windsor '. (source: www.royal.gov.uk)
The British royal family changed their last name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor in 1917. Why? World War One broke out in 1914 and anti-German sentiment was its height in 1917. In protest, King George V renounced all the German titles belonging to him and his family and adopted the name of his castle, Windsor.
From 8 February 1960, all The Queen's descendants who do not bear the "style, title or attribute of HRH, and the titular dignity of Prince or Princess" have the name of Mountbatten-Windsor. (Mountbatten as Prince Philip's surname).
Among the official royal residences are Buckingham Palace , Windsor Castle , St. James Palace , Balmoral Castle , Frogmore House, The Palace of Holyroodhouse , Sandringham House and Kensington Palace .

The Tudors for kids KS2
The Tudors for kids KS2 learning at Primary School. Homework help on the history of the Tudors, Tudor Britain and Henry VIII.
Time: 1485AD - 1603AD
Who were the Tudors?
The Tudors are one of the most famous families ever to rule England. They were in power from 1485 when Henry Tudor was crowned King Henry VII, until the time Queen Elizabeth I died, without an heir, in 1603. The Tudors were some of the most colourful people in history.
Tudor Kings and Queens
There were six Tudor Kings and Queens.
- Henry VII - 1485-1509
- Henry VIII - 1509-1547
- Edward VI - 1547-1553
- Jane Grey - July 1553
- Mary I - 1553-1558
- Elizabeth I - 1558-1603
Horrible Histories - Terrible Tudors
He had six wives:
- Catherine of Aragon - Catherine had a daughter with Henry, but no son so Henry divorced her.
- Anne Boleyn - Anne had a daughter (who would be Queen Elizabeth I) with Henry, but Henry turned against his wife and had her head chopped off.
- Jane Seymour - They had a son, Edward (who was the next King) but she died two weeks after he was born.
- Anne of Cleves - Henry divorced Anne after only six months.
- Catherine Howard - Catherine was only 19 when they married. Henry had her head chopped off.
- Katherine Parr - She looked after Henry's children.
Elizabeth had a quick temper and liked to get her own way. She liked to live in fine palaces in London and it was an exciting time when she ruled. There were a lot of new discoveries during her time and many English explorers sailed off to find new lands.
Unlike Henry VIII, Elizabeth I never married and as she grew older people wondered who would be next Tudor to take over. So when she died on 24th March 1603, the Tudor period ended and the next in line to the throne was James VI of Scotland who became King and started the Stuarts period.
Although Elizabethan England was very rich, there were many poor people who had to beg for a living. In 1563 a Poor Law was passed so that money could be raised for the less fortunate ones.
Sir Walter Raleigh
He had many expeditions across the Atlantic to America. From one trip he brought back potatoes and tobacco to Europe, two things that were not known of at that time.
Sir Francis Drake
The Spanish Armada
How did the spanish armada start.
In 1588 King Philip II of Spain, angry that the English were raiding Spanish ships and stealing their treasures, sent a fleet of ships (The Spanish Armada), to invade England. They planned to sail to the Netherlands to join with an army, but while sailing through the English Channel, they were attacked by English warships. Fierce sea battles took place and during one night, while the Spanish ships were anchored near France, the English sent eight ships that had been set on fire, into the middle of the Spanish ships. The Spanish panicked and scattered all over the place.
The next day battle raged all day but the English, in the end, won.
What happened to the Spanish Armada?
Having been blown north around Scotland and Ireland, most of the Spanish ships were wrecked in terrible storms.
