Queen Elizabeth II was born in London, 1926. She was the first child of her parents, the Duke and Duchess, who later became the King and Queen of England.
Queen Elizabeth’s full name was Elizabeth Alexandria Mary Windsor. She was ‘palace-schooled’ until her father took the throne; then she extended her studies.
Queen Elizabeth liked corgis, and always had at least one in the palace.
At age 88, Queen Elizabeth asked her sons to help her with the task of reigning over England, after having 62 years of solo reign.
