Queen Elizabeth II has now been queen for 67 years. She became queen on February 6, 1952, after the death of her father, George IV. Elizabeth was crowned more than one year later on June 2, 1953. The ceremony was held at Westminster Abbey and was shown on TV all over the world. At that time, Elizabeth II was the Queen of many countries besides the United Kingdom: Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon. Now these countries are independent, but she is still the Queen of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. (by Prof.Douglas Jarrell)
