Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary II was born in London, on 21 April 1926. Her parents were king George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. She had one sister Margaret Windsor. When she was 13 years old, she first met her husband and it was the love at first sight. Her parents did not approve her relationship but despite that on 20 November 1947, she married Prince Philip. Six years later, when Elizabeth was 27 years old, her father died and she became the queen of the United Kingdom.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have four children: Charles, Anne, Andrew, Edward and a lot of grandchildren and grand grandchildren. Elizabeth lives in her official residence, Buckingham Palace,  in London. As a queen she travels around the world representing her country and delivering speeches connected with political and social issues. Her hobby is horse riding,her dogs and photography.

Now, Elizabeth is the longest ruling monarch in the world. I really admire her. She is a very strong woman, but, at the same time, she is sensitive and compassionate . She is always faithful to her belief and thanks to that she is loved by millions of people.
