She was a very dignified and beautiful royal woman. Her calmness was unique, behind her quiet smile and proper voice, there is a shy lady who loves animals and the countryside. The Queen is beautiful in how she possesses riches while enjoying the simple things in life like walking with her dogs or driving her own vehicle, riding the horse. She had her own way of humble living. She always had lovely, flashing eyes, and now, as a senior woman of 96, she carried herself well. She appears to keep her hair and makeup simple. She has the smooth skin characteristic of British women. It takes effort and daily commitment to keep oneself looking healthy and presentable after 80. It might be tempting to sit around eating chocolates, but she seems to make the effort to go outside and move.
Her self-presentation in public was powerfully elegant and can even be robust at times, which is something beautiful knowing that she has the aches, pains, and limitations that all of us have when we reach old age—if not middle age. Queen Elizabeth was always dedicated to her people and job as monarch. Since declaring before the world on her 21st birthday that she would serve till the end of her life with the help of her people. On 9th of September last year, she became the longest reigning British monarch ever, some great achievement for her. I don’t think anyone in Britain had a work ethic like Her Majesty. She, even at the old age of 96, was bustling with robustness, zeal, and drive. She never actively sought out to become Queen for ulterior, selfish motives, rather royalty was thrusted upon her.
The adage is that Princes are born while Dukes are made. She was a hybrid of both. She never sought the monarchy, engulfed with its Royalty and riches, but rather inherited it. She has however crafted it in her own right, meaning she really works for it and earns her status. Queen Elizabeth uses to rise early and was busy working from daybreak up until past sundown. Only hard-working people can age like she has, and she was a very, very hard-working woman. Her Majesty, aside from being the monarch of the nation which has culturally influenced the globe like no other nation in the world has, is deeply nonpartisan and apolitical.
Considering how influential Britain historically was and still is, both within its historical global context, as well as economic, political, legal, and most significantly, cultural. This is strikingly unusual. Queen Elizabeth also doesn’t really speak much in the public. Her Uncle Edward’s abdication from the throne to marry a twice-divorced woman, Wallis Simpson, is what led to Princess Elizabeth becoming Queen Elizabeth II on the death of her father, King George VI, in February 1952 when she was only 25 years old. She was a mechanic during WWII. Prince Philip appears to be the only man she ever loved. She met him when she was 13 and he was 18.
When Queen Elizabeth became Queen, Prince Philip had to give up his naval career. Queen Elizabeth was very close to her parents and her younger sister, Margaret. Her mother had a lot of control over her life even after she became Queen. Queen Elizabeth knew her mother, Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, lived a very extravagant lifestyle but she indulged her and knew she couldn’t change her. Her mother lived to be a hundred years of age. The Queen loves dogs and horses. She got her first corgi named Susan about age 18. She finds her animals easier to communicate with than her own children. She couldn’t spend much time with Prince Charles and Princess Anne when they were young but she spent much more time with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
The Queen said Prince Andrew was such a beautiful baby and everyone was going to spoil him. Prince Philip spent more time with Prince Edward and he may have been the first child he was in the room with when the Queen gave birth. The Queen once said in interview that Prince Andrew was a terror as a child since he liked to play pranks on family members and staff. The Queen tried to warn Princess Diana during the time of her marital problems to be careful as there are powerful men out there that we know nothing about.
Princess Diana did not take her advice and paid with it with her life. The queen is the only female member of the British royal family to serve in WWII. She was only 18 when she joined the service. Furthermore, she was a driver for the military truck and used to change the wheels. She also drove ambulances. She has visited more than 115 countries without a passport. However, other Royal members do need to have a passport. She was one unique human being and royal queen, no one can ever replace her persona.
