In 2022 the world celebrates the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the British Throne. Princess Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926. She was just ten years old when she unexpectedly became heir presumptive to the throne, when her father, Bertie, became King George VI upon his older brother Edward VIII's abdication.
When George VI's health began to deteriorate in 1951, the young princess readily assumed many of the her father's responsibilities. George VI died suddenly in his sleep on February 6, 1952, when Elizabeth was on an official state visit to Kenya, then a British colony. She immediately acceded to the throne, becoming the first British monarch in over 200 years to do so while abroad.
