WHAT'S IT LIKE BEING QUEEN?

Being Queen is a really busy job. Elizabeth II gets up early and begins the day by looking through the newspapers. Then she reads letters from the public (she gets more than 1000 each week), and tells her staff how she would like them to be answered. The Queen has daily meetings with her Private Secretary who helps her to go through her paperwork, and lots of meetings with ambassadors, new judges, and bish­ops.

In the afternoon Elizabeth II often goes out on public engagements — she gets thousands of invita­tions each year. She opens new hospitals, bridges and factories.

Being Queen is not a 9 to 5 job, and Elizabeth II has to work from early in the morning until late at night. And people watch her all the time.

Of course, she has some free time, and some pri­vate life, but less than most people. In her spare time, Elizabeth II enjoys horseracing, fishing, and walking in the countryside. She also enjoys photography and likes taking photos on her travels. In 50 years the Queen has been on 251 offi­cial visits to 128 different countries.
