Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most iconic women (if not the single most iconic woman) of the post World War Two era. She has had weekly meetings with all of the last 12 British prime ministers; for decades she has headed up the Commonwealth of Nations which currently numbers 53 countries including Canada, Australia and South Africa; and she has spent serious time with all but one of the last twelve US Presidents. Her one omission because of the Vietnam War and her own pregnancy was LBJ. She has an immense knowledge of domestic and international affairs and works quietly and subtly behind the scenes to bring a great deal of stability to matters. Through her children and grand children and now great grand children she has ensured the continuation of the House of Windsor. And it was all really an accident. She was not born or initially raised to reign. It all came as a huge shock. As the elder daughter of the second in line to the throne her role in life was doomed to be one of falling down the royal ladder. Instead her childless uncle abdicated the throne to marry an American double divorcee and her dad sired only girls and no boys. So in her early 20s she became Queen and now in her late 80s has few records left to break; she has ruled out ever abdicating herself to make way for her first born son Charles. Her mother lived to be 102 so there is much speculation that the Queen herself will, with modern medicine, hit 100 and that Charles will have a very brief if any reign at all. Thus a long reign by his first born William (son of Lady Diana) beckons. Few appreciate the richness and seriousness of Queen Elizabeth's role seeing her merely as some ceremonial person there to cut ribbons. Nothing could be further from the truth as this new Bluewater bio comic reveals.
