Queen Elizabeth II Quiz

Elizabeth’s father and mother split their time between a residence in London and Royal Lodge, the family’s home in Windsor Great Park. Tutors educated Elizabeth and her younger sister Margaret at home. Academic studies included French, arithmetic, and history, as well as lessons in dancing, singing, and art.

When World War II broke out in 1939, Elizabeth and her sister were evacuated to Windsor Castle and generally kept out of London. In 1940, she delivered the first of her famous radio broadcasts, consoling the children of Britain who had been evacuated from their homes and family. The 14-year-old princess assured them that “in the end, everything will be okay; for God will care for us and give us triumph and serenity.”

Elizabeth soon began to take on additional public responsibilities. Elizabeth made her first public appearance reviewing troops in 1942 when her father appointed her colonel-in-chief of the Grenadier Guards. She also began accompanying her parents on formal visits within the United Kingdom.

Accession to the Throne
When Elizabeth’s grandfather, George V, died in 1936, his eldest son (Elizabeth’s uncle) ascended to the throne as King Edward VIII. Edward, on the other hand, was in love with American divorcee Wallis Simpson and had to choose between the throne and his heart. Finally, Edward selected Simpson and abdicated the throne.

The event altered the direction of her life, making her the presumed heir to the British throne. In 1937, her father has anointed King George VI, adopting the surname George to symbolize connection with his father. Her mother was crowned Queen Elizabeth; after King George’s death in 1952, she was crowned Queen Mother, and her daughter was crowned Queen Elizabeth II.

About the quiz

Coronation
At the age of 27, Elizabeth has crowned Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953, in Westminster Abbey.

When her father, King George VI, died on February 6, 1952, Elizabeth took over as the reigning monarch. For the first time, the coronation ceremony was aired live on television, allowing people all around the world to watch the pomp and grandeur.

On November 20, 1947, her husband, Prince Philip Elizabeth, married her distant cousin Philip Mountbatten (a surname adopted from his mother’s family) at Westminster Abbey in London.

Elizabeth met Philip, the son of Prince Andrew of Greece when she was just 13 years old. She was smitten with him from the beginning. Over the years, the two stayed in touch and eventually fell in love.

They made an interesting couple. Elizabeth was reserved and quiet, whereas Philip was exuberant and opinionated. Her father, King George VI, was concerned about the marriage because, while Mountbatten had ties to both the Danish and Greek royal houses, he didn’t have a lot of money and was thought to have a gruff attitude by others.

At the time of their wedding, the United Kingdom was still reeling from the devastation of World War II, and Elizabeth used clothes coupons to purchase fabric for her gown.
