It was certain that one day Elizabeth would be the Queen of England. But, what she did not know was, she would take the throne at such an early stage.
Her destiny was, that she would one day become the Queen of England, with responsibilities and challenges.
Although she herself wasn’t seen taking part in all the public celebrations, yesterday, was a significant day in the world’s history. Why? It marked the 66th anniversary of Her Majesty accession to the throne as the Queen of the United Kingdom.
More than six decades into her reign and she is now the longest ruling Monarch in the history of the British Empire.
Her Majesty, born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on April 21, 1926, refrained herself from any public events yesterday. Wondering why?
It was also the 66th death anniversary of her father, King George. King George himself acceded the throne in the year 1936 after the abdication of King Edward. All this was traumatising enough for the UK, as King George VI died in his sleep from a coronary thrombosis at the age of 56.

That time, 25-year-old Princess Elizabeth, immediately cut short of her tour to Australia and New Zealand via Kenya with her husband, Prince Philip. It was a rare situation but was true. Elizabeth left England with a title of ‘Princess’, and returned as the ‘Queen’ of England.
Addressing those in attendance at the Accession council held in St James’s Palace she shared a heartfelt statement.
“By the sudden death of my dear father, I, Elizabeth has been called to assume the duties and responsibilities of sovereignty. My heart is too full for me to say more to you today than I shall always work as my father did throughout his reign. I shall work to advance the happiness and prosperity of my people and spread as they are all the world over”.
The formal religious ceremony took place almost a year and a half later, on June 2, 1953.
It is in which the British monarch is ritually smeared with oil and crowned. Normally, the new British monarch ascends to the throne the moment their predecessor dies. The coronation actually takes place several months after the death of the previous monarch. Why?
A coronation is a joyous occasion that would be inappropriate while the mourning continues. This particular interval also gives the planners just enough time to complete the elaborated arrangements required.
Queen Elizabeth has always been a positive effect on the British monarchy.
As a woman is surrounded by a number of traditions, Queen Elizabeth has indeed played a fascinating role. But in what? In the huge and much-needed evolution of the British monarchy. She has done it over the surprisingly fast-paced transformations spanning both, 20th and 21st centuries.
