God Save the Queen

Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) is the constitutional monarch of 16 of the 53 Member States in the Commonwealth of Nations. She is also Head of the Commonwealth and Supreme Governor of the Church of England. Elizabeth holds many titles – (who would have thought she was also the Queen of Papua New Guinea), and has appeared on more currency than any other public official. She was really quite cute at age 8, kind of hot at 29 and then basically the queen we know today – old, old, old with a huge hat and pearls.

Some quick facts; Upon her accession on 6 February 1952, Elizabeth became Head of the Commonwealth and Queen Regnant of seven independent Commonwealth countries: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon. Her coronation the following year was the first to be televised. From 1956 to 1992, the number of her realms varied as territories gained independence and some realms became republics. Today, in addition to the first four of the aforementioned countries, Elizabeth is Queen of Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis. She is the longest-lived and, after her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria, the second longest-reigning British monarch.
