18 Quotes From Queen Elizabeth II That Would Make You Even Wiser

Queen Elizabeth II has been Queen since 1952 and she's presiding 16 independent countries as their head of state with much gusto. The early part of her reign saw the decline and disintegration of the British Empire and the eventual formation of the Commonwealth of Nations. Her reign was not without trials and even personal setbacks in her family have proven critical to her reign as well. However, with her wisdom, balanced views, and political neutrality seemed to have made her a larger than life figure that's beyond reproach. Her 40th year on the throne was dubbed as "annus horribilis" due to the breakdown of her children's marriage, the burning of Windsor Castle and increased republican sentiments. But she made it through her hardest days and her Golden (2002) and Diamond (2012) Jubilee celebrations was a testimony of the overflowing love and support of her subjects. With a woman of her age and experience, there's no doubt that we could learn something or two from Her Majesty. Her are some of Queen Elizabeth's most popular lines that endure to this.
