  • Queen Elizabeth II (the second)


    Wednesday, January 10th 2018

    Queen Elizabeth II at Madame Tussaud's wax museum in London

    The document is a picture.

    In the middle, there is the Queen, Elizabeth II (the second).

    In the background, on the right, there is her husband.

    On the left, there is her son.


    The Queen lives in Buckingham palace.

    Her husband is Prince Philip and her son is Prince Charles.

    She is important, famous and rich because she is the queen of Britain.

    She has a lot of medals of honour on her blue scarf. I think the Queen has a very expensive bracelet / watch. She wearing gloves and a beautiful crown on her head. She has an assistant / a servant who is brushing her hair.


    In the background, Prince Philip has a red uniform. He looks more important than Charles. But in reality, Charles is more important than Philip because he has royal blood. He is the next king.


    She is older than a lot of presidents, she has more experience. She has reigned longer, for 65 years.

    She became* queen of Britain in 1952 and she is 91 years old today.
