In 2021 the world celebrated the 95th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, termed her ruby birthday. Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926 and was just ten years old when she unexpectedly became heir presumptive to the throne. When the King's health began to deteriorate in 1951, the young princess readily assumed many of her father, King George VI's, responsibilities.
With her father's passing in 1952, Princess Elizabeth went into mourning and then acceded to the throne at the relatively young age of twenty-six on June 2, 1953. By this time she was a seasoned public figure, her years of service a strong indicator of what the Commonwealth could expect of its new queen. Today about 128 million people live in the 16 countries of which she is head of state. For many, the Coronation represented the beginning of a hopeful new Elizabethan era.In her glittering Coronation portrait, Elizabeth wears the Imperial State Crown.
