Elizabeth and Philip 1953

Official Coronation Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip.

Queen Elizabeth II (born 21st April, 1926) was the final Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reigning from 1952 to 1983. She became the second English monarch, both of the House of Windsor and overall, to abdicate willingly when she stepped aside in 1983 to allow her son, Prince Charles, to become King. It is thought that this was an arrangement which arose after consultation with Lord Louis Mountbatten after his daughter had married the Prince of Wales.

Current Title

Although she is still popularly referred to as the "Queen", her official title is different.
