Elizabeth II is the queen of the UK and the other Commonwealth realms. Over the years, she has been revered by her subjects for her administrative acumen and unequivocal empathy towards all factions of the society. Mesmerized by her larger-than-life persona, filmmaker Michael Waldman once quipped, “The more time I spent filming our queen, the more I was struck by the strange idiosyncrasies of her life.” The fact that she is the only female royal to have joined the military services and the only living head of the state to have served in the military during ‘World War II,’ bears testimony to her loyalty and devotion towards her country and countrymen. Post the tumultuous phase of the ‘Second World War,’ Elizabeth ushered England into an era of hope and prosperity. Patron of innumerable charitable organizations, Elizabeth II has also been subjected to various controversies.
