The 93-year-old was first crowned in 1953!
At 93 years old, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-living, longest-reigning British monarch. And while she and her famous family regularly make headlines, fans are learning more about her past thanks to Netflix's The Crown, which premiered season 3 on November 17 with an entirely new cast. Claire Foy portrayed the Brit for the first two seasons, and now, The Favourite star Olivia Colman has gracefully replaced her.
In 1947, Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, a former prince of Greece and Denmark. The couple has four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex. When her father died in 1952, Elizabeth, then 26, became the head of the Commonwealth. She was crowned in 1953 and in 2017, she became the first British monarch to reach a Sapphire Jubilee—a celebration to mark 65 years of her reign. In honor of her history-making rule, here are some photos of her life through the years.
