Queen Elizabeth: Her Life Before The British Throne

Did you know that Queen Elizabeth II is the first British monarch to have a Sapphire Jubilee? In 2017, this was celebrated in honour of her 65th anniversary of becoming queen. Most of her life has been spent on the throne of England.

Elizabeth became Queen only five years after her marriage to Philip Mountbatten. After his uncle died, Philip went to live with another uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, and it was this relationship that motivated Prince Philip to later fight for the honour of his surname. To learn about what the Queen wears to remember her late husband, please watch the video above.
