As the ruler of the United Kingdom is in her 90s, it can be difficult to imagine Queen Elizabeth II young. Furthermore, the long list of actresses who played Queen Elizabeth means you likely host many different likenesses of her majesty in your mind's eye. A beauty in her youth, Queen Elizabeth II's early life was rocked by the abdication of her uncle, Edward VIII, at which point the former Princess Elizabeth of York found herself thrust into the spotlight at a young age as the crown's new heiress. Since the Queen has sat the throne for a whopping 65 years, the longest of any monarch, it means that tons of Queen Elizabeth II young photos exist for your viewing pleasure.

Some Queen Elizabeth II young photos show her with her future husband Prince Philip, while others depict Queen Elizabeth II as a kid with her mom, sister, and dad. The latter pics - Queen Elizabeth II childhood pictures - offer a rare glimpse of domestic bliss, as do snaps of pictures of Queen Elizabeth II young with her growing family. All of them depict a woman who, whether she knew it then or not, now stands as one of the most recognizable names in history. That's as good a reason as any to bend the knee.
