Queen Elizabeth II was the Queen of the United Kingdom and of 15 other states. She was the head of the Church of England and the oldest monarch in the world since 1952. In her 66-year reign, she made many important decisions that had a lasting impact on the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries.
One of her first decisions was to change her title from "Princess Elizabeth" to "Queen Elizabeth II" to distinguish herself from her grandmother, Queen Victoria. This decision was intended to establish her as a monarch in her own right and show that she was ready to write her own chapter in British history.
Another important decision Queen Elizabeth II made was to establish the Order of the Garter. This order is one of the highest military orders of the United Kingdom and is awarded to individuals who have rendered outstanding services to the Crown or the country. The Order shows the Queen's appreciation for those who defend their country with bravery and loyalty. Even in times of crisis, Queen Elizabeth II has made important decisions to keep the United Kingdom together.
After the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, she addressed the British people in a radio message, reaffirming the values of freedom and tolerance. She also gave a speech after the 2017 attacks on Parliament, encouraging and giving hope to the British people. Queen Elizabeth II was a monarch who always kept her people in mind and was decisive. Through her far-sighted decisions, she contributed significantly to the well-being of the United Kingdom and its citizens.
