Today marks the fifty-ninth anniversary of the current Queen's reign and I've posted this fantastic video which is a very rare example of the Queen reflecting on her life and career. I absolutely love this video. "It's a very dingy world otherwise..."
For those interested in genealogies and royal titles, the Queen's current title in the United Kingdom is: -
Elizabeth the Second, By the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.
A full recording of the National Anthem, for those in a patriotic state of mind, can be watched on YouTube here. Usually, as in America, only the first verse is sung, but on special occasions, I believe, all three are still used.
