Be Proud To Be British With The Diamond Jubilee Inspired Promotions

Watching the Duke of Cambridge and Kate's wedding last year made us all proud to be British, so why don’t we support the Queen's reign by giving all our respective clients Promotional products for the event of the season...the Queens Diamond Jubilee?

The Queen was born on the 21st of April in 1926 she was the eldest daughter of King George IV and her mother Queen Elizabeth. Her full name being Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, although her surname is not her real surname and she is commonly known to be Queen Elizabeth II. She became Queen when she was twenty-five when her father George IV passed away. She was tutored at her home and studied French, mathematics, geography, and history, however she also had singing, dancing and art lessons.

As a 14-year-old princess when world war two struck she made her first broadcast over the radio to support the children that has been evacuated away from their homes in London into the countryside. It was said that 1.9 million children were evacuated in world war two and many had to leave their cities and be taken to the countryside to live with complete strangers.

However it was said the only non-royal act the Queen did was train to be a mechanic and driver for the Auxiliary Territorial Service in 1945, she trained within many other men and woman and did not have any special support but was treated like a normal young lady. Although the volunteer work only lasted a few months she gained a real sense of the outside world compared to the royal world. Queen Elizabeth, however, found her life long partner Philip Mountbatten the son of Prince Andrew of Greece when she was just thirteen years old.

The marriage was arranged in 1947 on the 20th of November when Great Britain was still recovering from world war two, the wedding was set at London's Westminster Abbey and gave hope to a lot of people who were still suffering from the destruction of the war. Prince Charles was then born a year after their wedding and soon after princess Anne in 1950 and the Queen went on to have two more sons prince Andrew and Edward. Soon after her father George IV 's death, the queen knew it was her turn to take on the duties, she was crowned in June 1953, however, this was to make history and many people watched it on newly designed black and white televisions, this was the event of the year.

This season our Queen is celebrating her reign of sixty years, her diamond jubilee will have all the nation watching being proud to be British, it's said however that Britain's longest reigning monarch was Queen Victoria and she reigned for sixty-three years.

Although the lifestyle of a Queen you may think was full of luxuries this busy Queen is said to handle 430 engagements a year and is said to support over 600 charities all over the country. We have so many reasons to be proud of being British but 60 years of the crown is a massive achievement, millions of people will be lined up to support our Queen and her 60 year reign. Support the nation with Promotional products for the Queens Jubilee.
