Queen Elizabeth II

Over this four-day weekend in the UK and the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee, which marks the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. It was in 1952 that Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne after the death of her father, George VI. Did you know she is only the second monarch in the history of the United Kingdom to achieve this important milestone? The first monarch to have celebrated a Diamond Jubilee was her second great grandmother, Queen Victoria. Have you joined in on the Diamond Jubilee festivities?

Queen Elizabeth II is connected to over 60 million profiles in Geni’s World Family Tree. How are you related?

      Thanks! Yes, you’re correct. George VI was her father – his correct profile was linked to the name. The post has now been updated.

    Queen Elizabeth II is my 13th cousin. I remember following her from the time I was young in the 1940′s and 1950′s. Glad we are in the same family.
