In 1952, after the death of her father, Elizabeth—the family’s eldest child—took the kingdom. The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Pakistan, and Ceylon all recognized her as their queen regnant as a result.
Hers was the first televised coronation in recorded history. She also holds the title of Queen informally in the following countries: Belize, Tuvalu, Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Barbados, The Bahamas, Grenada, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent, and the Grenadines, Nevis, and Saint Kitts. She rarely agrees to interviews because she is a constitutional monarch.
Elizabeth is now one of the longest-serving monarchs in history and the longest-serving monarch in the history of the British monarchy. Charles, Prince of Wales, is the heir apparent to the throne, according to the Queen. William will inherit the title Prince of Wales, which is reserved for the heir to the throne after Charles ascends.
Elizabeth has been wed to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, since 1947, as was previously mentioned. Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward were their three children after Charles. They currently have seven great-grandchildren and eight grandchildren. More than 600 charities and organizations are supported by Elizabeth. For most of her life, she has been known for owning Pembroke Welsh Corgis.
Most of Queen Elizabeth’s numerous palaces and possessions are not her own. It is The Crown. This includes the Crown Jewels, which are made up of more than 140 precious individual pieces. These belong to the royal collection and are regarded as national treasures. During their reign, the king is permitted to own and utilize them.
The royal collection is dispersed throughout the many royal residences and consists of paintings, furniture, tapestries, pictures, and other things. Additionally held in trust are Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. They cannot be sold by them because they are only there for the use of the current king.
Balmoral Castle in Scotland and the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk are both privately owned by Queen Elizabeth. These assets were passed down to her by her father. She individually owns multiple works of art, a sizable stock portfolio, and even a stamp collection.
Buckingham Palace is the Queen’s official residence in London. The interior decor of Buckingham Palace is still as it was in the early nineteenth century. In addition to being a museum and residence for the British monarchs, Buckingham Palace also functions as a popular tourist destination. She also has access to Windsor Castle for fast weekend trips.
The Crown Estate
In essence, The Crown Estate is a collection of properties that are not owned by Elizabeth or the government. If Queen Elizabeth did personally own the Crown Estate, her net worth would certainly surpass $25 billion, placing her among the world’s top 50 richest people. She doesn’t necessarily own the Crown Estate but benefits from its revenue.
Elizabeth receives a yearly income from the Crown Estate of about $18 million. The Duchy of Lancaster, a different real estate holding company, earns $27 million annually. Elizabeth receives 25 percent of the revenue generated by the Crown Estate through a company called the Sovereign Grant to cover her and her family’s living expenses, including travel and housekeeping.
It was in London in the United Kingdom that Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born in April 1926. Her mother and father were Prince Albert, Duke of York, and Elizabeth, Duchess of York.
