royaltyspeaking:

February 6, 1952- King George VI dies in his sleep at Sandringham House, and his 25 year old daughter, Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh, ascends the throne and becomes Queen Elizabeth II 

"The High and Mighty Princess Elizabeth Alexandra Mary is now, by the death of our late Sovereign of happy memory, become Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God Queen of this Realm and of all Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, to whom Her lieges do acknowledge all Faith and constant Obedience with hearty and humble Affection, beseeching God by whom Kings and Queens do reign, to bless the Royal Princess Elizabeth the Second with long and happy Years to reign over us."

To 62 Glorious years!

Y Bwthyn Bach: The Little House

Y Bwyth Bach, or The Little House at Royal Lodge, was a gift given to Princess Elizabeth, the future Queen Elizabeth II, and her sister, Princess Margaret, from the people of Wales in 1932. It is made entirely of Welsh materials and stands in the grounds of Royal Lodge to this day, with its own scaled down garden and interior fittings. It has recently been renovated as can be seen here.
