Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth IIGod save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen!

Elizabeth Mary Alexandra, born in 1926, became Queen Elizabeth II in 1952, and is adored all around the world.

Elizabeth became "heir presumptive" at age 10 in 1936 when her uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated and her father became George VI. In 1947 she married Prince Philip and they have four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, and eight grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry.

We have all sorts of printables for Queen Elizabeth that the kids can enjoy - including colouring pages, posters, notebooking pages and mini booklets, a fun fact-finding worksheet, a tutorial teaching children how to draw their own portrait of the Queen - and even some fun printables of her favourite dog, the corgi!
