Happy Birthday, Elizabeth R!

Today, June 13, is the official birthday of the monarch of Great Britain, Elizabeth Regina.

Queen Elizabeth (the second with that name) was actually born on April 21, 1926 in Mayfair, London. She is 94 years old, and looking pretty good for her age!

Elizabeth was feted today as part of Trooping the Colour, an event that has marked the official birthday of the reigning British sovereign for more than 270 years.

Princess Elizabeth was married in November of 1947, when she was 21 and I was 6 months old! That’s a long time to be married.

She ascended to the throne in February, 1952, upon the death of her father, which means that she has been Queen for 68 years, making her the longest serving monarch in England’s history. Her official coronation took place in June, 1953.

Happy birthday, Elizabeth!

    Just in case the Queen stops by Stella’s Place before she heads off to bed, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YOUR MAJESTY! If George III had been as good a monarch as you, we’d probably still be part of the British Empire.

    Found the following at Quora.com…Is Queen Elizabeth related to King George III?
    YES, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Second, By the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland And Her other Realms and Territories Q U E E N, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of The Faith is the great-great-great-great granddaughter of His Majesty King George III of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, of Ireland, Elector of Hanover, Defender of the Faith.

    This Queen, and perhaps Queen Victoria, are the only ones who keep one’s faith in the monarchy.
    Queen Elizabeth is, has been, and probably always will be, the best monarch who ever “ruled” Great Britain.
    Thanks for the vid and pics, Stella. Made my day.
