Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary) was born in Mayfair of London on April 21, 1926 and came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.

She was the Queen of the United Kingdom and of 14 other sovereign countries from 6 February 1952 until her death. Her reign of 70 years and seven months is the longest of any British monarch.

Queen Elizabeth II’s tenure as head of state spanned post-war austerity, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.

Her reign spanned 15 prime ministers starting with Winston Churchill, born in 1874, and including Liz Truss, born 101 years later in 1975, and appointed by the Queen earlier this week, BBC reported.

She held weekly audiences with her prime minister throughout her reign.
