Queen Elizabeth is one of the most well-known figures of the twentieth century. She is the longest-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom and roughly 16 other countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. She is the Commonwealth’s Head of Government.
In the royal family of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926 in London. Queen Elizabeth I, the Queen Mother, and King George VI were her parents. She received her schooling at home from a private tutor. Princess Margaret, her younger sister, was born in 1930. Her father, King George VI, was elected to the throne in 1936, and she has been the heir apparent since then.
Queen Elizabeth served in the public sector during World War II, even before she became Queen. She was made an honorary colonel of the Grenadier Guards in 1942. In the absence of her father, King George VI, Parliamentary laws were changed to appoint her a Counsellors of State. She joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service in February 1945. She completed driver and mechanic training and was promoted to junior commander. Following her coronation as Queen on February 6, 1952, she assumed leadership of a number of sovereign governments that were once part of the British Empire and later became known as the Commonwealth of Nations. She has played a major and crucial role in world affairs since her 1957 visit to the United States and her address to the United Nations General Assembly. She had a key role in the eradication of apartheid in South Africa, as well as bringing peace to the Suez Canal issue, the Falkland Islands war, and Grenada. She traveled extensively throughout these countries, being the first reigning queen of Australia and New Zealand to do so. She has traveled to a number of Commonwealth countries on state visits and tours. She has become the world’s most traveled head of state as a result of her longest tenure as Queen.
In 1947, she married Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Essex were the royal couple’s four children. The eldest son, Prince Charles, is the heir to the British monarchy. In 1952, she was crowned Queen, and her coronation was the first to be broadcast on television. The British constitution and parliament recognize her as the constitutional monarch. She also possesses a number of constitutional offices and titles.
Queen Elizabeth, who was born on April 21, 1926, is 95 years old today, February 10, 2022. Her height is 1.63 meters, and she weighs 58 kg.
Queen Elizabeth’s net worth is predicted to be above $600 million as of February 2022. Sandringham House in Norfolk, valued at $70 million, and Balmoral Castle in Scotland, valued at $150 million, are among her personal holdings. The Queen and her family spend their summers at the latter. The queen is also entitled to a 5% portion of the income generated by the Crown Trust, which has been entrusted with the crown’s assets. She receives roughly $60 million per year from this trust, which generates over $400 million in annual income. The Crown Estate, the Crown Jewels, and Buckingham Palace, which is valued more than $8 billion, are all part of the trust. The $10 billion royal art collection is also mentioned. It also has homes on Regent Street and in St. James, as well as parts of downtown London. Other assets include 263,000 acres of farms and orchards, extensive expanses of coastline and seashore estates in the United Kingdom, and a slew of others worth more than $20 billion. The royal family also owns all of England’s unmarked swans. The Crown Estate was established during King George M’s reign, when he was deeply in debt. The royal family receives a yearly income from the trust, which owns and operates the properties. The Duchy of Lancaster, which has roughly 50,000 acres of land, brings in about $20 million per year for the Queen. The British government also provides the Queen with an annual privy purse totaling around $13 million for personal purposes. However, it’s worth noting that these aren’t the queen’s personal property, which means she and her successors can only inherit them and enjoy the revenue they generate, not sell them. The Queen is not on any Billionaires List, although she is still one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful women. Queen Elizabeth is not only the world’s wealthiest lady, but she is also the world’s longest-serving monarch, at 95 years old. Aside from the Queen’s inheritances, she possesses a sizable personal estate that she inherited from both her father, King George VI, and her mother, Queen Mother Elizabeth. The collections of postage stamps, jewelry, and furniture that Queen Elizabeth owns are priceless. The entire world wishes the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, a long and happy life, as well as a Platinum Jubilee of the Queen’s accession in 2022.
