20 exclusive and precious old photos of "National Geographic", take you back to the Queen's life

The Queen seen by National Geographic has always been kind, firm, curious, and confident as before. Queen Elizabeth II attends an official ceremony in Manitoba, Canada, in 1970. Canada became independent from the United Kingdom in 1982. At the height of the British Empire, it was estimated that one in four people in the world was a British subject. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the number of British colonies decreased from 70 countries to 16. PHOTOGRAPH BY W.E. GARRETT, NAT GEO IMAGE COLLECTION Written by ‍Erin Blakemore Compiler: Angel Tips: It will take about 5 minutes to read Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor sitting on the ancient throne with her eyes down. The 27-year-old was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom and its Commonwealth countries just minutes ago — wearing a gold cape, a jeweled scepter and a heavy crown. The sound of silver horns and the cry of "God save the Queen" echoed throughout Westminster Abbey. The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, 1953. PHOTO: JAMES JARCHE, NAT GEO IMAGE COLLECTION At this 1953 coronation, no one expected the Queen to set a record 70 years on the throne. Fortunately, senior National Geographic photographer James Jarché was there, who captured every moment of the ceremony with a Leica camera loaded with Kodak film and airlifted the precious images back to National Geographic's Washington headquarters. In September of that year, the magazine's editors published the color photos and reported everything about the Queen's coronation: from the London bunting, which still bears the marks of war, to the British silk used to make the Queen's dress. Letters flooded in from around the world after the story was published, with readers pleading for photo copies as a special memorial. Picture editor Kip Ross called it "the best video story of my life". And in the decades since, National Geographic has been documenting the Queen's life: our world-class photographers have captured not only the public figure's official image, but also rare moments in her private life. Fashion, national borders, communications, public customs...almost everything has undergone dramatic changes in Queen Elizabeth's life. And the queen that "National Geographic" sees is always kind, firm, curious, and confident, just like the beginning. In 1937, King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary and Princess Elizabeth were photographed in front of a model of the "Sovereignty of the Seas" at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, England, when the princess was 11 years old.

She was queen when she visited again in 1957.

During the Queen's visit to the United States, she specifically requested to watch an American football game. PHOTO: WILLIAM W.

The Queen herself does not have a driver's license, but loves to drive, and will continue to do so herself until November 2021 following a health issue. Queen Elizabeth II learned to drive as early as 1945 during World War II, when she served in the women's voluntary agency "Domestic Women's Support Force", trained as a mechanic, and was the first female member of the British royal family to serve in the agency. .
