Ten key moments of his reign





Isabel II She is an essential part of the history of the United Kingdom, with almost seven decades as head of the Crown, which makes her the longest-serving British queen.

His reign spans the second half of the 20th century to the present, from the Cold War to ‘Brexit’ or the coronavirus pandemic. These are the ten highlights of his career on the British throne.

Resignation to the throne of Edward VIII

Elizabeth II was not destined to be queen, but the abdication of his uncle Edward VIII it placed her on the path of succession. The king of England fell in love with a divorced woman, the actress wallis simpson, but Parliament opposed the marriage, which led to his abdication in December 1936, when he had not even reigned for a year. His sympathies for Nazism also had to do with his departure from the throne, becoming an annoying character for the British royalty, who ostracized him.

The crown fell to his brother Alberto, who reigned for 16 years, until his death, with the name of George VI and Elizabeth, as her eldest daughter, became the heiress.

    Wedding of Elizabeth II and Philip of Edinburgh

    Elizabeth II and Philip of Edinburgh greet each other on their wedding day, November 7, 1947.

A coronation seen across the country

On November 20, 1947, Isabel married Philip Mountbatten and together they made several official visits due to George VI’s poor health. It was precisely during a trip to Kenya, in February 1952, that his father died.

After more than a year of mourning, Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953 at Westminster Abbey., in a ceremony prepared to the millimeter and that was seen throughout the country thanks to television cameras. A circumstance that was a first step in the connection that the queen maintained with her subjects for much of her mandate.

After the coronation, the sovereign and her husband toured all the London boroughs and visited Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

The Aberfan tragedy

On October 21, 1966, a mudslide swept through the Welsh town of Aberfan, killing 144 people, most of them children. Elizabeth II took a week to visit the site of the tragedy, in one of the most controversial episodes of her reign and which, years later, she would describe as one of his main mistakes.

However, during her visit the queen was “deeply moved” -according to the chronicles of the time-, a version opposite to the cold image shown in the series The Crown, with an Elizabeth II unable to get emotional in the face of a devastating tragedy. the british queen would visit Aberfan up to four more times, the last one in 2012.

Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister

In 1979, the conservative Margaret Thatcher She became the first woman to serve as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Although a priori the fact of being women and having been born only a few months apart suggested an understanding between the two, Elizabeth II and Thatcher maintained a distant relationship on a personal level, although correct on an institutional level.

The sovereign was not convinced by the right-wing politics of the ‘Iron Lady’ and she was particularly displeased with the hostile environment that arose on the islands with the mining riots that took place in the mid-1980s, as well as Thatcher’s stance against sanctions against the South African regime for the apartheid.

However, after her resignation in 1990, the sovereign distinguished the ‘tory’ leader with the Order of Merit and in 2013, when Thatcher died, Elizabeth II attended her funeral, the first she had attended since that of Winston Churchill.

The wedding of the eternal heir

On July 29, 1981 Charles of England and Diana Spencer were married at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, in a link that was followed by 750 million viewers. The wedding was sold like a fairy tale and the couple that formed the eternal heir and the teacher of noble origin – not royal – seemed exemplary in the eyes of public opinion, something that would be boosted by the birth of their two children. , William (1982) and Enrique (1984).

However, the reality is that the marriage soon went awry due to differences between spouses and, above all, infidelities. Carlos resumed his youthful relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles while ‘Lady Di’ had several extramarital affairs, as she would later confess. Elizabeth II ended up taking matters into her own hands and, after several years of separation, suggested to the couple a divorce that Diana accepted in February 1996.

1992, the ‘annus horribilis’

In 1992 Elizabeth II experienced some of the worst moments of her reign, which made her described it as ‘annus horribilis’ in a speech pronounced on November 24 in the ‘City’ of London. It was not for less: a few days before there had been a fire at Windsor Palace, which he had always considered his home.

The family situation was even worse than the material one. During that year there was separation of the princes of Wales, Carlos and Diana, and of the Dukes of York, Andrew and Sara Ferguson. Also the princess anne, who had separated in 1989 from captain mark phillips, married again with the commander Tim Lawrence. The British yellow press harshly shook the royal family and, especially, the sovereign, especially after the publication of the book of Andrew Morton Diana: her true story, in which ‘Lady Di’ herself was directly involved, although at that time this fact was hidden.

However, the queen reacted quickly and promised to start paying taxes for the first time, which changed the image of the institution, until reaching great popularity as of the 21st century.

Although the family continued to give him headaches: that is what happened with the Prince Andrew’s relationship with American millionaire and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein , which led to the withdrawal of his military titles after being implicated in an alleged case of sexual abuse. Or with the departure of his grandson Enrique and his wife, Megan Markle of the royal family, including accusations of racism.

The death of Lady Di

On August 31, 1997 Diana of Wales and her partner at the time, the billionaire Dodi Al Fayed, died in a traffic accident in Paris, a news that shocked the whole world and that was the source of numerous conspiracies.

The role of Elizabeth II in the moments after the accident was controversial: for several days stood silent at Balmoral castle (Scotland) with her grandchildren, who were with her at the time of death. It was the pressure of the then prime minister Tony Blair -with whom he had important differences- which convinced the queen that she had to make a public gesture, which came through a speech in which she lamented the death of her former daughter-in-law, whom she described as “a human being exceptional”.

The decision was very favorable for the image of the queen. not like this his relationship with the Labor leader, who never received from the hand of Isabel II the decoration that she granted to many of her predecessors.
