To celebrate the Queen’s 90 years here are loads of surprising facts about her life and reign.
Perhaps you already know that Queen Elizabeth II is our longest reigning monarch, but did you realise that she has responded to 3.5 million letters? And had you stopped to think that, because she’s still working a 40 hour week at 90, she has worked for 30 years longer than the majority of British women? What an amazing lady! Most incredibly of all, did you know that the Queen has a King? Using exerts from her 2011 Christmas speech to the nation, this video explains that our Queen is indebted to her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in whose forgiveness she feels the power of God’s love.
