The Queen’s 70 years of rule, starting in 1952, was marked by extreme societal shifts and often controversy as the world staggered out of World War 2. But through it all the Queen stood tall as a symbol of grace, dignity, and quiet strength. 

Former Prince Charles of Wales has now ascended the throne as King Charles Ⅲ. The new head of state for the United Kingdom and 14 Commonwealths, will step into a role that has become synonymous with Queen Elizabeth’s reign. The world mourns and waits as the Crown is passed down to another generation.
