"I must be the only one who wears a hat regularly," the Queen wrote to Philip Somerville, the royal dressmaker who designed the queen for a quarter of a century before Somerville died in 2014 hat of.

PHOTOGRAPH BY LUKE MACGREGOR, REUTERS (more pictures after the article) Compilation: The Red Queen Reminder: It takes about 5 minutes to read this article Queen Elizabeth II, Alexandra Mary Windsor, in September 2022 UK time Died on the 8th at the age of 96, leaving a country in mourning for her. As the longest-reigning monarch in British history, Queen Elizabeth II fulfilled a lifelong oath she once made: "A lifetime of solemn devotion". She transformed from a reserved young princess to a calm public figure, taking on the image of a country as a female king. During her reign, the decline of the former "British Empire" was linked to the modern Commonwealth of Nations. She is an unforgettable witness to the political history of the contemporary world. She leads not only a country in flux, but a family marked by scandal and conflict. A humble trailblazer, Elizabeth II acts as a bridge between past and present. She came to power in a country that still had the trauma of World War II and had a turbulent time. She has seen colonies that had been plundered and enslaved become independent instead of continuing under her country's rule. In all this, she symbolizes tradition in the face of change. With her death, Elizabeth II's eldest son, Prince Charles, will take the throne as Britain's first new monarch in generations. Eight-year-old Princess Elizabeth shakes hands with a guard outside Rushmoor Arena.

STANFIELD, NAT GEO IMAGE COLLECTION Unlike her own marriage, the marriage of Elizabeth's son Charles to Diana Spencer was a court political marriage. In this 1982 photo, the tense gesture seems to herald a future rift. PHOTO: TERRY FINCHER, PRINCESS DIANA ARCHIVE, GETTY IMAGES In 2007, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, George W.
