This Day In History -1952 -Ascension of Queen Elizabeth



February 6, 1952.  Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became Queen  of the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms (including Canada). She was a pillar of strength during World War II providing equal parts of resolve and solace to England and all the Commonwealth countries.  Although her role has diminished, she remains a strong symbol of grace and dignity.

I’m no Monarchist but long may she reign because the gaggle of young heirs in the wings doesn’t  inspire much confidence.
