She became Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 at just 25 years old. Married to the dashing Prince Philip of Greece, with two young children, princess Anne and prince Charles. They were a very glamorous young family. For the first time in history, her subjects all over the world were able to watch her spectacular coronation at Westminster Abbey.
Her first Prime Minister was the great Winston Churchill. David Cameron is her 12th PM! The secretary general of the United Nations described the Queen as “an anchor for our age” and “a leading symbol of grace, constancy and dignity”. We couldn’t agree more!
She is Queen of 152 commonwealth countries, supports over 600 charities and despite her grand age, continues a full time schedule. The blend Twinings has created reflects the commonwealth, with tea blended from Kenya, Sri Lanka and India.
