PETER ROBINSON
THE ART OF MONARCHY

Reflections on Queen Elizabeth II

On February 6th, 1952, at age 25 year, she ascended to the Throne and is now the longest serving Monarch in British History. This year, she also celebrated her 96th birthday.

As popular in USA as Great Britain she was served by 14 prime ministers including Winston Churchill, saw the demise of the Empire, survived several family upsets, and still embodies the loyal support of her people, respected around the world.
