Queen Elizabeth II Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor
The Queen was born at 2.40 am on 21 April 1926 at 17 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London. She was the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
Princess Elizabeth was educated at home with Princess Margaret, her younger sister. After her father succeeded to the throne in 1936 and she became heir presumptive, she started to study constitutional history and law as preparation for her future role.
Marriage and family The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary on 20 November 2010. Shortly after the Royal Family returned from South Africa in 1947, the Princess's engagement to Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten was announced.
The couple, who had known each other for many years, were married in Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947. The event was fairly simple, as Britain was still recovering from the war, and Princess Elizabeth had to collect clothing coupons for her dress, like any other young bride. They spent their honeymoon at Broadlands, Hampshire, the home of Lord Mountbatten, and at Birkhall, Balmoral.
They have four children, and eight grandchildren
Interests An animal lover since childhood, The Queen takes a keen and highly knowledgeable interest in horses Other interests include walking in the countryside and working her Labradors, which were bred at Sandringham.
Queen and charities An important part of the work of The Queen is to support and encourage public and voluntary service. One of the ways in which Her Majesty does this is through involvement with charities and other organisations.
The Queen's birthdays The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on 21 April and her official birthday on a Saturday in June. The Queen usually spends her actual birthday privately, but the occasion is marked publicly by gun salutes in central London at midday
