Most of the time, Queen Elizabeth II and her consort, Prince Philip, live at Windsor Castle in Berkshire. She also often resides at Buckingham Palace in London, which is her official residence, and where her principal offices are maintained. She sometimes lives at her other private residences, San…dringham House in Norfolk and Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The monarch also maintains official residences at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh and Hillsborough Castle in County Down, Northern Ireland. She rarely stays at Holyrood, however (generally only if she has business at the Scottish Parliament), and Hillsborough Castle is primarily used by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. Sandringham House in Norfolk and Balmoral Castle in Scotland, unlike the official residences, are personal possessions and ownership is not a consequence of being monarch.

The Queen's working day begins like manypeople's - at her desk. After scanning the daily Britishnewspapers, The Queen reviews her correspondence. Every day, 200-300 (and sometimes manymore) letters from the public arrive. The Queen chooses a selectionto read herself and tells members of her staff …how she would likethem to be answered. This enables Her Majesty personally tosee a typical cross-section of her daily correspondence. Virtuallyevery letter is answered by staff in her Private Secretary's officeor by a lady-in-waiting. The Queen will then see, separately, twoof her Private Secretaries with the daily quota of official papersand documents. This process takes upwards of an hour. Every day of every year, wherever sheis, The Queen receives from government ministers, and from herrepresentatives in the Commonwealth and foreign countries,information in the form of policy papers, Cabinet documents,telegrams, letters and other State papers. These are sent up to her by the PrivateSecretaries in the famous 'red boxes'. All of these papers have tobe read and, where necessary, approved and signed. A series of official meetings or'audiences' will often follow. The Queen will see a number ofimportant people. These include overseas ambassadors andhigh commissioners, newly appointed British ambassadors, seniormembers of the British and Commonwealth Armed Forces on theirappointment and retirement, and English bishops and judges on theirappointment. Each meeting usually lasts 10 to 20minutes, and usually The Queen and her visitor meet alone. The Queen may also meet a number ofpeople who have won prizes or awards in a variety of fields such asliterature or science, to present them individually with theirprize. If there is an Investiture - a ceremonyfor the presentation of honours and decorations - it begins at11.00am and lasts just over an hour. The Queen usually meets around100 people at each Investiture to present Orders, decorations andmedals. The Queen will often lunch privately.Every few months, she and The Duke of Edinburgh will invite a dozenguests from a wide variety of backgrounds to an informal lunch.Occasionally, the guest list may consist of far fewer people, suchas a newly appointed or retiring Governor-General and theirguest. If The Queen is spending the morning onengagements away from her desk and other commitments, she willvisit up to three venues before lunch, either alone or jointly withThe Duke of Edinburgh. On a regional visit, The Queen and TheDuke of Edinburgh lunch with a wide variety of people in placesranging from town halls to hospitals. . (MORE)
Monarchs choose which of their names they wish to be known by, not by family or dynasty. The present Queen of the United Kingdom is Elizabeth II because she is the second person named Elizabeth to ever to be Queen of that country or one of its predecessors, such as Queen of England. The numbering… works a little different than the way commoners of the same name in the same family would be numbered, because of the wide influence of a monarch. Elizabeth I the Virgin Queen Sometimes the name is used more than once even in different blood lines, so even though she might not have had any children, another queen can choose that name. Queen Elizabeth I never had a daughter. In fact, she didn't have and children at all. Queen Elizabeth III? In monarchies, names bear no significance involving relation or lineage. Queens Elizabeth I and II just happened to go by the same name. There has never been a Queen Elizabeth III. At the moment the Queen of the United Kingdom is Elizabeth II. Elizabeth I never married and died childless at aged 70. She was therefore succeded on the throne of England by James I, the first King of England and Scotland who reigned until 1625. The following monarchs were : Charles I (1625-1649) ; Charles II (1660-1685) ; James II (1685-1688) ; William III & Mary II (1689-1702) ; Anne (1702-1714) ; George I (1714-1727) ; George II (1727-1760) ; George III (1760-1820) ; George IV (1820-1830) ; William IV (1830-1837) ; Victoria (1837-1901) ; Edward VII (1901-1910) ; George V (1910-1936) ; Edward VIII (abdicated 1936) ; George VI (1936-1952) ; Elizabeth II (1952-present day) Note from a pedant Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. King James I of England was also King James VI of Scotland and his succession to the throne of England began the process of the "Union of Crowns" The title "Queen (or King) of England " no longer exists. ------------------------------------------------------------- I see the point you are making is ---- how can there be a hereditary monarch if Queen Elizabeth I had no children. Well the crown passed to a close relative of Queen Elizabeth I (James I) and the present Queen Elizabeth II is a direct descendant of him not her namesake. (MORE)
Answer Scotland is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch is in effect Queen of Scotland although that title does not formally exist. In actual fact, Queen Elizabeth II is only Queen Elizabeth II in England. As Scotla…nd had never previously had a Queen Elizabeth, Queen Elizabeth II is actually only Queen Elizabeth I in Scotland. (The previous Queen Elizabeth in England was not a monarch in Scotland as the Union of the Crowns occurred on her death with James VI of Scotland becoming King in England (in England he was known as James I)). There are some factual errors here. James I of England was James VI of Scots (note Scots not Scotland in the title) This was because there were two distinct kingdoms he reigned over. The two kingdoms were united into Great Britain in 1707 (later becoming the United Kingdom in 1801 when Ireland was added in) Since that time Monarchs take the highest ordinal number that has existed in either England (from 1066) or Scotland. There have been 3 Richards in England and none in Scotland. If there was another King Richard he would be Richard IV of the UK Similalry there have been 3 Roberts in Scotland and none in England. If there was another King Robert he would be Robert IV of the UK Hence the current Queen is Elizabeth II in both countries. There may be some Scottish nationist who would take issue with this but desiring on thing is different to how it actually is and besides, they could still be independent with the same Queen as in Austraila or Canada she is afterall probably more Scottish than English and overall more German one could argue.

Queen Elizabeth is the fortieth monarch since William the Conqueror obtained the crown of England.

Queen Elizabeth II does not have weaknesses. She has few remaining political powers under the UK constitutional monarchy system.
Queen Elizabeth II is queen because the Act of Settlement (1701) provides that since the death of Queen Anne and William III, the senior descendant of the Electress Sophia of Hanover in agnatic primogeniture shall be the monarch of England unless he or she is a Catholic and unless he or she marries …a Catholic. The Act of Union (1707) made this law apply to the United Kingdom. From 1936 (before the Queen's accession) until 28 May 1972 His Majesty's Declaration of Abdication Act modified this rule to exclude the Duke of Windsor from the throne, but that has been dormant since he died. The Australian Constitution provides that whomever succeeds Queen Victoria as sovereign of the UK is Queen of Australia (known as king is male). Queen Elizabeth succeeded Queen Victoria by the operation of the Act of Settlement in conjunction with His Majesty's Declaration of Abdication Act and that made her Queen of Australia. In short, Elizabeth II is Queen because Parliament made a series of laws to have that effect. (MORE)

Her Majesty is the head of the Anglican Communion, which we call Episcopal. She was crowned by the Archbishop of Canterbury- who is the senior Clergyman in the United Kingdom. However, it is known that Queen Elizabeth has had at least Three different audiences ( maybe summits would be a better word)…- with ruling Popes- Paul VI, John Paul II ( during the Falklands War, when one of her sons- Andrew- was on active duty in the RN as an airman)-and most recently Benedict XVI . It is unusual for an Episcopal Monarch to have had summits with three popes! (MORE)

Because she is the second queen to rule England of that name. It has nothing to do with having children, or else William I, Richard I, Richard II, Edward VI, Mary I, Charles II, William III, Mary II, William IV and Edward VI would also not count for none ever had a legitimate child.

Queen Elizabeth II was privately educated at home and didn't attend any school or university.

When Elizabeth II was born, she was not at that time a very likely heir to the throne. Her uncle was next in line and it appeared that the lineage would follow his line rather than her father's. Elizabeth's place in the line of succession became far less remote when her uncle, Edward VIII abdicated …after less than a year on the throne, leaving her father as king. Her father then reigned as George VI. At his death Elizabeth became queen, because she had no brothers*. Also, her mother's name was Elizabeth, and her mother was adored and lovingly known as Elizabeth the Queen Mother. So at her birth the direct connection with Elizabeth I was less strong, although the association is unavoidable. She could have chosen another regnal name, a name to be called when she took the throne, but decided on Elizabeth despite the controversy it caused in Scotland. So she may not have been deliberately named after Elizabeth I, but she embraced the connection at the time of her accession. The problem among the Scottish comes from the fact that Elizabeth I was never Queen of Scotland; Scotland had an independent monarchy during the reign of Elizabeth I, and England and Scotland united only under James VI of Scotland I of England, following Elizabeth's death. From the point of view of Scotland, the current queen is Elizabeth I. *There is a movement currently to change the rules of succession so that the eldest child takes the throne regardless of the eldest child's sex.
