Answer

The title Supreme Governor of the Church of England has been held by the Monarchs of England, and later of Great Britain, since Queen Elizabeth I, who reigned from 1558 to 1603.

It is currently held by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Henry VIII held the slightly different title of "Supreme Head in Earth of the Church in England" under the terms of the Act of Supremacy.
