Queen Elizabeth II, the United Kingdom's longest-reigning monarch, passed away 8 September, 2022 at Balmoral Castle, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.  Born April 21, 1926 in Mayfair, London, she was the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. She was christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary at Buckingham Palace on 29 May that year. The Queen was married in holy matrimony to Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, Duke of Edinburgh in Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947. Her husband whom she called "Her Rock and Her Stay" remained firmly by her side until his passing April 9, 2021. Upon the passing of her beloved father in 1952, Princess Elizabeth immediately ascended to the throne becoming Queen Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith. The Queen was a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she was a woman for all times.  She stood firm.  Through it all.  In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. She is well loved worldwide and she is deeply missed by us all.
