LEADIN:

Remembering Queen Elizabeth II.

During her long reign, Her Majesty toured the British Commonwealth and greeted religious heads and world leaders.

STORYLINE:

Having been crowned Queen in June 1953, during the early years of her reign, Elizabeth embraced her role as head of the British Commonwealth.

In late 1953, she set out to complete the Commonwealth tour she’d began before her father, King George VI’s death in February 1952.

With Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, by her side, she visited Bermuda, Jamaica, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Australia, Ceylon, Uganda, Malta and Gibraltar.

Despite various trips and travels abroad, Queen Elizabeth’s own family continued to grow too.

On 19 February 1960, she gave birth to her third child, Prince Andrew. Four years later, on 10 March 1964, she gave birth to her fourth child, Prince Edward.

With the birth of Andrew, Elizabeth became the first reigning Sovereign to give birth since Queen Victoria in 1857.

In 1971, she received Emperor Hirohito of Japan on his first State Visit to Britain since the Second World War.

In 1980, she and Prince Philip visited Pope John Paul II in the Vatican.

In 1957, the Queen was called on to appoint a new British Prime Minister following the sudden resignation of Anthony Eden in the wake of the Suez Canal crisis.

Conservative politician Harold MacMillan would accept her invitation and serve as prime minister till 1963.

1977 proved to be an eventful year for the Queen.

In November, she welcomed her first grandchild into the world when Princess Anne gave birth to her son, Peter Phillips.

In June ’77 Her Majesty celebrated her Silver Jubilee, marking 25 years on the throne.

Marked with a national holiday, the British public celebrated. During the recession-hit 1970s, it provided an excuse to forget about unemployment and take to the streets for a party.

Later that decade, the Queen received Britain’s first female Prime Minister at Buckingham Palace, when Margaret Thatcher replaced James Callaghan as leader in 1979.

There were increased social tensions during Thatcher’s 11 years in power, such as the coal miners’ strike in 1984/85.

During her long 63-year reign, Queen Elizabeth II has witnessed all her four children get married, including the ill-fated pairing of Prince Charles and the then Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.

In July 1981, an estimated global TV audience of 750 million watched ‘Charles and Di’ exchange vows at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral.
