Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1952. She proclaimed that she’ll dedicate her life to her future role as monarch on her 21st birthday, vowing to serve the Commonwealth.

Her Majesty’s speech was: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong”.

However, if she decides to abdicate, the throne could be passed on to her eldest son, Prince Charles. In this case, he would become King and would be the oldest-ever British monarch to be crowned.
