The Queen of England, Elizabeth II, is one of the most famous and well-known monarchs in the world.

She has been on the throne for over 70 years, making her the second longest-reigning monarch in history!

And yes, on a worldwide basis since she is by far the longest-reigning monarch in UK history.

She is loved and respected by so many people and we all got to see it during the celebrations of her platinum jubilee in June 2022.

There are many incredible things to know about the Queen. Perhaps, the most surprising fact of them all is the fact that she wasn’t supposed to be Queen.

It’s because her uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated that her father became King.

Sadly, she lost her father pretty young and that’s why she became Queen in her 20s.

Since then, she did a lot of things for the world, the UK and the Commonwealth.

But how much do you really know about her? Take this Queen Elizabeth II quiz to find out!
