Queen Elizabeth II Early Life

Elizabeth was born in London, England, on April 21, 1926. On February 6, 1952, she was crowned queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. She surpassed Victoria in 2015 to hold the title of British monarch with the longest reign ever. Prince Albert, duke of York, and his wife, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, had an older daughter named Elizabeth.

Young Elizabeth had little chance of inheriting the kingdom because her father was King George V’s younger son until her uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated on December 11, 1936, making her father King George VI and her the presumed heir. The princess’s education was overseen by her mother, who left her daughters in the care of a governess named Marion Crawford. C.H.K. Marten, who would later become the provost of Eton College, also provided the princess with a foundation in history.

She received instruction in music and foreign languages from visiting teachers. She and her sister, Princess Margaret Rose, were forcibly removed from their parents and forced to spend most of their time living in Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the Royal Lodge in Windsor, and Windsor Castle during World War II.

Who Will Succeed Queen Elizabeth II After Her?

She was crowned in accordance with the royal succession after the passing of her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952.

The royal line of succession is described as “the sequence of members of the Royal Family in the order in which they stand in line to the throne” and is “controlled not merely by descent, but also by Parliamentary statute,” according to the Royal Family website.

The eldest Prince of Wales, Charles, will succeed Queen Elizabeth II. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince George, the firstborn child of Prince William, will follow.

1. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales

 The first in line to succeed his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, is Prince Charles. From 1981 to 1996, he was wed to Lady Diana Spencer, the Princess of Wales.

Out of respect for the late Princess Diana, she declined the title of Princess of Wales.
