I’ve been a huge fan of her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II since I was a child and that fascination with her has never waived. I find her to be the epitome of duty and honour. She has been on the throne for 69 years. She was 25 years old when her father, King George VI, passed away in 1952. For 69 years she has been in service to her country and the Commonwealth. Whatever you may think of the monarchy, it is Elizabeth who stands head and shoulders above them all.
I’m hoping she lives beyond 100 years of age so she can send herself a telegram on her 100th birthday!
Here are some glorious photos of young Princess Elizabeth during the 1940s (where she served in the UK Armed Forces and learned how to fix an engine or two).
