QUEEN ELIZABETH II (THE MONARCH)
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was welcomed to the world by King George VI and Elizabeth Bowes Lyon on April 21, 1926. Her journey to becoming the longest-serving monarch didn't begin at birth. It started when her father, Prince Albert, became the king after his brother, King Edward VIII relinquished the throne in 1936. After her father's demise in February 1952, Elizabeth became the Queen at the young age of 25. At the time Elizabeth was a young wife with two little children— Prince Charles and Princess Anne— and was in Kenya when she heard of her father's demise.
Now, Queen Elizabeth has four children, eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. The world has seen the monarch transform from a shy teenager to the oldest and longest-serving current head of state. She celebrated her Silver, Golden, Diamond, and Sapphire Jubilees in 1977, 2002, 2012, and 2017 respectively.
