A celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, detailing the highlights and challenges of her seventy-year reign.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has carried out her role as sovereign with flawless professionalism. Her demeanor has been perfect, and in the seventy years she has reigned, she has epitomized all the hallmarks of an iconic sovereign beloved by her people.
When she succeeded her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952, Elizabeth was only twenty-five years old. Married for just five years with two young children, her life changed irrevocably. The responsibilities of the monarchy have taken precedence over all else, and the public duties invariably have first call on the Queen’s time and energy.
