On April 21st Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be Britain’s first reigning monarch to reach the grand old age of 90. And doesn’t she look rather fabulous for it?
Also known as Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, she’s wife to Philip and mother to Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward. She’s quite possibly one of the most elegant, widely recognised and best-loved women on the planet. A true icon of our time.
But how much do you actually know about Queen Elizabeth II? Are you aware that she has a particular penchant for Earl Grey tea and speaks fluent French? That she adores horse racing but has never placed a bet?
Ahead of her 90th birthday celebrations and because we’re feeling unashamedly patriotic here at Joules, we’ve compiled a few of the lesser-known facts about Britain’s indomitable monarch.
So reach for your Union Jack flag, maintain your stiff upper lip and brush up on some splendidly majestic trivia.
Happy Birthday Ma’am!
