Queen Elizabeth II is a name known throughout the world.
The 92-year-old is extremely dutiful in her role as Britian’s Queen and is the country’s longest serving monarch, reigning for 67 years.
She was born in Mayfair on April 21, 1926 and was crowned Queen in 1953 in Westminster.

On this day, the first official photographic sitting with The Queen was granted to the society photographer Dorothy Wilding. It took place on 26 February 1952.

The Queen married Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1947 and the two made a very handsome couple.
Hit the headlines after crash
Their marriage has stood the test of time and they have four children, eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
In January Prince Philip hit the headlines after the 97-year-old was involved in a crash which left two women injured. The incident led him to give up his driver’s licence.
But now Queen Elizabeth has sparked concern worldwide after photos captured something worrying.
The photos were taken during a royal visit from Jordan’s King and Queen at Buckingham Palace in London.
The Queen and her only daughter Princess Anne met Jordan’s King Abdullah, Queen Rania and their son Crown Prince Hussein and they posed for pictures together.
A large bruise
British media noted how beautiful she looked but couldn’t help but raise the alarm bells after noticing something on her hand.
As she greeted her royal guests she had her left hand behind her back but in the picture her left hand is clearly visible and has a large bruise on it.
The large purple bruise is sparking speculation that the Queen may have fallen or it could be a sign of a possible health concern.
Buckingham Palace has refused to comment, according to an article in U.K. newspaper the Express.
Other theories as to why the Queen’s left hand is bruised is that it could be due to an injection, drip or blood-thinning medicine.
Watch the clip below to see the bruise close up.
Whatever the cause it’s another example of Queen Elizabeth not letting anything get in the way of her royal duties. We hope her majesty recovers soon!
She has ruled the U.K. for 67 years with grace and dedication. Share to pay tribute to this inspiring and dutiful monarch.
