Queen Elizabeth II (April 21,1926 – September 8, 2022) is Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms. Significant events have included Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953 and the celebrations of her Silver, Golden, Diamond and Platinum jubilees in 1977, 2002, 2012, and 2022, respectively. Elizabeth is the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, the oldest and longest-serving incumbent head of state, and the second-longest reigning sovereign monarch in world history. She has faced occasional republican sentiment and press criticism of the royal family, particularly after the breakdown of her children’s marriages, her annus horribilis in 1992, and the death in 1997 of her former daughter-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales. However, support for the monarchy in the United Kingdom has been and remains high, as does her personal popularity.
She is the mother of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and grandmother to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who stepped down from being a senior member of the royal family in 2020 after his marriage to Meghan Markle.
