Queen Elizabeth II (April 21, 1926 – September 8, 2022) served as Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms for 70 years up until her death at age 96, making her reign the longest of any British monarch. Here in the Still Picture Branch at the National Archives, we have a handful of photographs within our holdings of the late Queen Elizabeth II and her official travels to the United States.
Before becoming Queen and gaining the title of Head of State, she was known as Princess Elizabeth of England.
Acceding to the throne at 25 years-old, Queen Elizabeth II would go on to meet every U. S. President beginning with Harry S. Truman, with the exception of Lyndon B. Johnson. Check out these photograph’s of her with various U. S. Presidents and adventures in Washington, D.C.
The photographs included in this post have no known copyright restrictions. If you have any questions about the images in this post or the holdings of the Still Picture Branch, please contact us at email@example.com.
