Wednesday (21) marks the 95th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II of England. The Queen, the first time since assuming the throne, spent her birthday without her husband, Prince Philip, who died earlier this month.
Elizabeth assumed the throne in 1952 when her father passed away, at the time she was only 25 years old. In the year after her father’s death, she was crowned the first British coronation to be televised around the world, crowning the Queen at the head of four independent countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It is also considered the queen of other countries such as: Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas, Granada, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent, the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua, Barbuda, Saint Kitts and Nevis.
At present, the woman is already a great-grandmother and her eldest son Charles, Prince of Wales, succeeded her to the throne. Despite various criticisms of the royal family and attacks by republican movements, the Queen remains firm in her stance and in the continuation of the monarchy in the country.
