Queen Elizabeth II At 90

This week the Queen celebrated her 90th Birthday. She is one of the world leaders and women that I admire because of her longevity, dedication to serving her country and people, survivor, and so incorruptible. Well, she is the only Queen of UK I know ever since I was born. It was like growing up with the Queen always there. Then my family moved to Canada which brought us more closer to the Queen and her royal family.  I wish some world leaders will follow her example by being less corrupt and be more dignified. I wish the Queen a longer life to live and a better quality of life in her older years. 
The Queen was not born in a Palace but at 17 Bruton Street in London's Mayfair on 21 April 1926 and was christened on 29 May 1926 at Buckingham Palace. 
The Royal Family stayed in Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle during WWII. The Queen learnt to drive in 1945 when she joined the Auxiliary  Territorial Service as a Subaltern. 
The Queen and Prince Philip celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary in 2007.

The Queen is a keen photographer and enjoys taking photographs of her family.
The Queen became the longest reigning monarch on 9 September 2015 surpassing Queen Victoria's long reign. Princess Elizabeth was crowned Queen in June 1952 at 25 years old. She is the fortieth monarch since William The Conqueror obtained the crown of England. 
Every day of every year, the Queen is kept fully briefed on matters affecting the realms and Commonwealth. 
The Queen has visited 117 countries, travelling at least 1,032,513 miles during her reign. 
Queen Elizabeth is Patron of 626 charities, organisations and military regiments.
