What lessons can we learn from Queen Elizabeth II?

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II leaves a legacy for us all and for all future generations. In an ever-changing world, she was a consistent and stable force, embodying the qualities of a great leader.

‘Queen Elizabeth was educated at home like many girls from wealthy families at that time (1930s). After her father King George VI succeeded to the throne in 1936, Elizabeth became first in line to the throne. She started to study constitutional history and law as preparation for her future role.’

‘She received tuition from her father … and was educated in religion by the Archbishop of Canterbury. She also learned French from a number of French and Belgian governesses. It was a skill which stood The Queen in good stead, particularly on visits to French-speaking Canada and to French speaking countries.’
