A Major Milestone in British History
Elizabeth II was born in London on 20 April 1926 to the future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. A happy, sensible child, Princess Elizabeth carried an air of authority indicative of leadership qualities that would become very much apparent in later life. Indeed, from her teenage years on, the Princess played a key role in the public duties of the Royal Family, particularly as her father became unwell. Becoming Queen at the age of 26, Elizabeth II has devoted her long life to the service of Britain and the Commonwealth, and her 95th birthday will be celebrated by millions of people around the world.
