"The upward course of a nation's history is due in the long run to the soundness of heart of its average men and women."
"I myself prefer my New Zealand eggs for breakfast."
Queen Elizabeth II was born as Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on April 21st, 1926. In 1947 she married Phillip Mountbatten and became queen on February 6th, 1952. By 1969, she had 4 children. At the end of 2016, she came down with a "heavy cold" and missed several traditional events, including some Christmas and New Years services. She made her next public appearance in January 2017 since being ill.
She is very important to the world for many reasons. She stands as a role model to Great Britain. She has 4 kids. She is in the record book as the longest reigning monarch in British history. She has held her throne for more than 63 years. Another thing she did was, in 1957 she became the first monarch to open the nations' parliament on her official visit to the US.
The queen is very important because she is the symbol of Great Britain. She is equal to opinions because she doesn't make national decisions or political stances. She also even has two birthdays. One on her real birthday, and another as her official birthday as queen in June.
