Queen Elizabeth is dead and with her an era has come to an end. She reigned for nearly 70-years. The Queen was crowned in 1953 and since then she has ruled over Britain. During this long span, she had worked with 15 Prime Ministers starting from Winston Churchill to most recently elected Liz Truss. An eventful career with lots of ups and downs including controversies.
From her falling in love with the Prince Philip to marrying him as her Royal family did not appreciate young Elizabeth falling for a Greece Naval Officer. Some her policies too had attracted controversies, In 1992, her daughter Anne divorced her husband Mark Phillips, Andrew separated from Sarah Ferguson.

It was here, Diana had turned her face as Charles was about to kiss.
