Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926 in London. Her birthday is officially celebrated in Britain on the 3rd Saturday of June each year.

Queen Elizabeth II is the head of the state. But the country is run by the government, led by the Prime Minister.

The Queen lives at Buckingham Palace. She is married to Prince Phillip.
The National Anthem is 'God Save the Queen'. On official occasions, only the first verse is usually sung:

God save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen.
