Obituary: Queen Elizabeth II

The long reign of Queen Elizabeth II was marked by her strong sense of duty and her determination to dedicate her life to her throne and to her people. In 1939, the 13-year-old princess accompanied the King and Queen to the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth. The monarchy seemed secure in the public’s affection and much of that was down to the Queen herself. One difficult area was the Queen’s devotion to the Commonwealth, of which she was head. The Queen knew the leaders of Africa well and was sympathetic to their cause. The deaths of the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee year, 2002, cast a shadow over nationwide celebrations of her reign. The referendum on Scottish independence, in September 2014, was a testing time for the Queen.
