WHEN HIS UNCLE RELEASES THE THRESHOLD OF LOVE
The life of Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of longest reigning monarch in the world, is actually one that can be seen in movies or novels. His uncle abdicates the throne out of love and his father becomes king in his place. And then, as he is the eldest of the family, he ascended the throne after the death of his father. Possibly his uncle, King VIII. Had Edward not abdicated for Wallis Simpson, Queen Elizabeth and her children would have been in a very different position today.

YEARS OF WORLD WAR II
Shortly after his father’s accession to the throne, World War II broke out. In the process, when the bombing of London began, veteran politician Lord Hailsham offered to take Elizabeth and her sister Margaret to Canada. But his mother, Elizabeth, known as the Queen Mother at the time, did not want to send her children or go herself. She insisted on staying with her husband. Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Margaret remained in the relatively safe environment of Balmoral Castle in Scotland. From there they moved to Sandringham House, Norfolk.

THEY WERE IN KENYA
Elizabeth was staying in Sagana with Prince Philip when her father died. News of her father’s death was first sent to authorities in Nairobi. But as the telegram took so long to decipher, Elizabeth learned of her father’s death a few hours later. The King’s death was first announced to Prince Philip. He also told his wife that he had lost his father. Rachel Bowie, host of Royally Obsessed, also said Elizabeth didn’t want to be seen by photographers at the time. After Elizabeth and Philip canceled the rest of their royal tour, they immediately began preparations to return to London. But Elizabeth, shocked by the news of her father’s death, was not seen by any photographer during those few days.

On a trip with her husband, while they were in Sagana, Kenya, on February 6, 1952, she learned that her father had passed away and she had succeeded him. He gave the first parliamentary speech on November 4, 1952. He was officially crowned in 1953, and the ceremony was televised for the first time in history.
