Feel like a royal and take a seat next to Queen Elizabeth.
Did you know...
- Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on 21st April 1926 was born in London, United Kingdom. Sovereign of Great Britain and ruler of the Commonwealth, Elizabeth’s family have ruled for over 1,000 years. She is the head of a royal family famous throughout the world. Queen Elizabeth II has been the monarch of 16 Commonwealth realms including the United Kingdom, since 1952. She is one of few British monarchs to celebrate her Golden Jubilee and marked the 50th anniversary of her accession to the Throne in 2002.
- The first and only female member of the royal family to actually serve in the armed forces (1945); Queen Elizabeth II is also the patron of more than 620 charities and organisations. She has been sculpted by Madame Tussauds artists from sittings in 1966, 1985, 1992 and 2001.
- Queen Elizabeth II has received more than three million letters and many unusual gifts, including jaguars, snail shells, maple trees and even shell fish! Since the year 1688 - England is a constitutional monarchy, that means that the real power lies in the Parliament; the Queen herself has no real power. She rather represents the country, opens kindergartens, making state visits and opens the Parliament with a speech.
