The Queen of England.

Queen Elizabeth II was born on the 21st of April 1926 and was 86 this year. Her ability to speak French fluently was very useful when she visited French-speaking parts of Canada as Queen.

When Liz was ten years old a great scandal happened: Her uncle, Edward the 8th, gave up being King to marry a divorced woman called Wallis Simpson. Elizabeth’s father became King George the 6th because of this. When World War 2 came, Liz and her sister Margaret remained in England because they wanted to go to Canada with at least one parent , but their mother wouldn’t leave the King and the King wouldn’t leave London to go with them.

Elizabeth joined the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service and qualified as a motor mechanic, being the only English monarch to ever have had that qualification. After the war Liz married her cousin, Lieutenant Phillip Mountbatten, becoming Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh.
